20. Arrest ‘n’ Guest ‘em

was a “fun” promo thing the local chamber of commerce once did in Hot Springs, SD. Maybe it still goes on – I don’t know. Every week or so during the summer tourist season the local police would put on their flashing red lights and siren and randomly pull a vehicle over that had out-of-town license plates. The police would pretend to arrest the people in the vehicle, but then hand them tickets for free meals or discounts at local stores and motels. The “lucky” arrestees would then have their pictures plastered on the front page of the local newspaper.

All apparently went well until the cops pulled over a married man and his girlfriend who’d driven over from Wyoming to avoid being seen by their family and friends. The couple wouldn't give their names, but their Arrest 'n' Guest 'em picture appeared on the front page of the paper anyway. Oops.
