Some Photo Ops Work Out Better Than Others

Two New Jersey men spotted a police van and climbed in to get a picture while pretending to be arrested. But they locked themselves in and were arrested for real. In California, when I-405 was closed for repairs, three people pretended to have dinner on it. They posted the photo on Facebook sitting around a table with candles in a passing lane.

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Some people work hard for a great photo. Two New Jersey men left a party and spotted a police van. They climbed in to get a picture while pretending to be arrested. But they locked themselves in the van and were arrested for real. Three Californians did better. When the 405 freeway was closed for repairs, they pretended to have dinner on it. They posted the photo on Facebook, sitting around a table with a table cloth and candles, in a passing lane.
