That Wasn't A Bomb In The Municipal Court Parking Lot

Things got a little tense at Municipal Court this morning, and it wasn't because of the usual BS changing-lanes-without-a-signal ticket.

An attendant noticed a container in a pick-up truck that was yellow and marked with stickers saying "radioactive" and "danger."

He called the bomb squad.

After some nervousness, it was determined the box contained legitimate equipment to test soil, and the driver had a license for it.

So "Nothin' to see here, move along" was declared, and everyone went back to their business. Of fighting BS changing-lanes tickets.
