Confined, Confound It

A man in Fort Smith, Ark., called police saying he needed help. When an officer arrived, Dustin Grant Taylor, 21, met him in the apartment building’s parking lot and showed that he was handcuffed. He explained he and his wife had been “doing some kinky things” but had lost the key. The officer did a warrant check on Taylor, then walked him back to his apartment, removed the cuffs, and replaced them with his own: Taylor had a warrant out for his arrest charging felony criminal mischief. He was released on $1,500 bail. (RC/Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) ...That’s the nice thing about the police: unlike your wife, they don’t throw away the key.
