A man caused a brief scare on the bridge Wednesday morning after someone reported he was carrying a suspicious package. It turns out the item was a gigantic replica candy bar, according to Trooper Guy Gill, a State Patrol spokesman.>
“It was called in as a suspicious package on the bridge, and we take that very seriously,” Gill said. “But then we go out there and find we are dealing with a big, old king-size candy bar.” He said the bar — which was 6 feet tall and more than 2 feet wide — was an advertising prop for a type of candy that is typically sold as school fundraisers. The brand of candy is unknown.
According to Gill, the call came in just before 10 a.m. The individual who was holding the plastic candy bar was “trying to advertise on the bridge.”
Yep. Someone tell the terrorists they can stop anytime…it’s over.
