From the lighthearted file, courtesy of the Stockton Fire Department:
A young man studying to become a correctional officer handcuffed his friend Tuesday afternoon and then needed firefighters’ help upon realizing he didn’t have the key.
Crews responded to the 1900 block of Hickok Court about 4 p.m. and used a pair of bolt cutters to free the young man, said Matt Harris, chief’s operator for the Stockton Fire Department.
When I heard the call over the scanner for a man in handcuffs, my mind flashed to the Seinfeld episode where George Costanza is seduced on the subway by a woman and promptly robbed in a hotel room.
Glad this wasn’t perverse; just stupid.
