It was a just a silly teenage prank
While riding in her dad’s car at nine o’clock at night in Valencia, Spain, a 13-year-old girl decided it would be funny to hold up a sign that said:
"Help. I’m being kidnapped."
But it was not so funny to the off-duty police officer driving nearby, who cut off their car, forced it to stop, and pulled a gun on the father.
More police officers arrived, and everyone soon realized it was all a joke gone bad.
Father and daughter were released without charges.
I wonder if, afterwards, father and daughter had a little conversation about appropriate passenger behavior.
