Did you hear about the evacuation of Akron's City Hall?
"The Akron City Hall was evacuated Wednesday morning after a suspicious object was located outside council chambers. The Bomb Squad, sheriff’s office, Akron police and fire departments and ATF responded to the building at around 9 a.m., where everyone inside was ordered to leave. On the third floor, crews found a 4-foot aluminum pipe with duct-taped ends and the word “Kaboom” written across it. There was also another message that read, “nuisance people have been eliminated.” The pipe was a walking stick for a man who calls himself Natural Hunka Kaboom. “He basically told officers he left (the pipe) there, used it as his walking stick, left it at council when he was at a council meeting Monday night and he forgot about it,” said Lt. Rick Edwards with the Akron Police Department. Police said they are convinced the 66-year-old Kaboom never meant to intentionally scare anybody, but investigators said it was still better to be safe than sorry."
Truth is stranger than fiction.
