Wurst-Case Scenario Causes Police Alert
Fri Jan 31,11:49 AM ET

BERLIN (Reuters) - A man who mistook a salami for an automatic pistol triggered a major police operation on Friday in southern Germany, involving 10 police cars and a helicopter.

The man alerted police that he had seen three men handling a gun in a car at a motorway service area. Police cars, dogs and a helicopter chased the car and held up the men, only to identify the "weapon" as a salami.

"Behind the dirty windows of the car, the man had mistaken the salami for a gun," a police spokesman in Traunstein said. "The men in the car had probably passed the sausage through the car."

The salami was returned to its owners, he said. Police report that the witness was just being a brat. :neener:

And if it was the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile, would the call have come in as a person with a self-propelled gun?

Good things the guys in the car gave the salami to the cops rather than trying to conceal it, otherwise they could have been accused of trying to hide the salami. :D
