Colts Fans Hold Bears Flag Hostage

Chicago Bears FlagI really love a great who done it, don’t you? This one from Franklin, Indiana (just south of Indianapolis) take the prize for this week, though.

For a practical joke, one of Kevin Barnard’s neighbors, Sally Jackson, a devoted Colts fan, devised the plan to abduct his Chicago Bears flag and hold it for ransom.

Rest easy, the mystery is solved and the flag is back home. All’s well that ends well.

Monday night, someone took Kevin’s Bears banner flying in Colts country and held it hostage.

“I didn’t hear it flapping in the wind. It was gone along with my flagpole,” Kevin said. “And when I woke up the following morning, I had this ransom note on my windshield wipers.”

The note read, in part, “The sideline subplot for crying out loud. We have your flag…want it back? Save big and pay off before kickoff.”

“And the hostage takers don’t want money. They want alcohol,” Kevin said.
