Dummy on noose shocks drivers
LAS VEGAS -- Police say a mannequin dangling from a hangman's noose on a Las Vegas billboard with the words "Dying for Work" was a publicity stunt.
Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Jeremie Elliott said 911 calls started coming in early Wednesday from drivers worried the dummy along Interstate 15 near Bonanza Road was a real person.
The black billboard featured the words "Dying for Work" in white lettering, with a hanging, dark-suited mannequin.
A woman who answered the phone at Lamar Advertising Co. said the sign was not authorized and was being removed. She did not provide her name.
Elliott said it's not clear who's responsible.
At least one similar billboard was reported in Las Vegas. That sign read "Hope You're Happy Wall St." and featured another dummy.
