But what happened Winnetka, IL; goes a bit further than anything I have seen as a punishment for a butt dialing incident.
In this suburb of Chicago, a school employee accidentally butt dialed his wife. She heard things that made her believe that he was being held hostage. She called the cops, they responded with a SWAT team.
Turns out what she heard during the butt to ear call was music lyrics.
"He was listening to music and he had, I don't know, hip-hop … or music like that, where there were lyrics that were gangster-like. So there were lyrics on the radio as he was driving home, and she listened to it and became concerned."
No one was harmed in the incident, and students at the school had already been dismissed for the day.
You can't make this stuff up.
