11. Reminds me of another bizarre Kansas incident involving law enforcement...
...back in the 1980s, I think.

It involved a sheriff in Council Grove. He rented a VHS machine (remember those and how we used to rent them to view movies at home?), hooked it up to camcorder. Then he and his wife "performed" and taped it. He returned the machine to the store BUT FORGOT TO TAKE THE TAPE OUT!!!

Man, talk about "local scandal!" It was the talk of many counties around.

I found the story--

The Sexy Videotape

Claim: A couple rents a video camera and VCR and tapes themselves engaging in sex, then accidentally leaves the tape in the player when they return it to the video store. The tape is quickly circulated and duplicated until nearly everyone in town has a copy.

Status: True.

Origins: In late 1986 in the small farm town of Council Grove, Kansas (pop. 2300), Corky Woodward rented a camera and a videocassette player from the only rental store in town. Woodward, the sheriff of Morris County, then made an erotic 90-minute tape of himself and his wife Dannette, but inadvertently left the tape in the VCR when he returned it to the store. The next person to rent the player got the tape as well, and soon hundreds of copies were circulating throughout town.
