Messy box of ribs causes bomb scare in Tenn.

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - A messy box of ribs left in a Clarksville parking lot caused police to call in the bomb squad and a bomb inspecting robot. The Leaf-Chronicle reports police blocked off the city's Public Square Thursday morning after someone noticed a box was found abandoned on a park bench.

Police spokesman Jim Knoll said the owner of the box was soon located. The woman told police she was from Chicago and had brought the ribs with her when she came to town for a family reunion. She had left the box in the parking lot to dry after she took out the ribs.

No charges were filed.

And who says there is no over reaction and humor in the world today. I wonder what the bill for that little police dispatch cost ?

Years ago, someone would have just picked it up and tossed it in the how times have changed.

  1. I often wonder if it can possibly get worse? How did every agency get this paranoid? Just how does a park in Tennessee become a target for terrorism is beyond me. Somewhere there is a hidden motivation I trust.
