    This story is the best they could do? I guess there are no racists, sexists, homosexuals or sexual predators doing anything newsworthy today.

    How in the world did they get that it was on 15-501?? it happened at the Wendy's on Shannon Road and Auto drive. The only traffic hold up was from curious drivers who pulled into the parking lot above the scene to look at it....
