R. Kelly Called; He Wants His Song Back

John Arwood, 33, and Amber Campbell, 25, claimed they were “chased” into a closet at Daytona (Fla.) State College. They were “trapped” in the closet for two days — until Arwood finally called 911 from his cell phone. Police tracked the phone’s location and let the couple out. Inside the closet, officers found human feces and copper scouring pads sometimes used to smoke crack; no drugs were found. An officer, trying to determine how they got locked in, went into the closet and closed the door. The door not only didn’t lock, it appeared there was no way for it to lock. Arwood and Campbell were charged with trespassing. Police were unable to explain why Arwood waited two days to call 911, or why they couldn’t get out of the closet in the first place. (MS/Orlando Sentinel) ...At least the jail-keepers wont have to worry about locking their cells.
