Cops lure deadbeats with promise of Auburn/Alabama tickets

This may be our favorite story, if we had only caught it on July 29th when it happened.

Apparently, the Lee County, Alabama Sheriff's department came up with an elaborate way to catch up with over a dozen deadbeat parents. Tell them to show up at a location in Opelika and claim tickets to this years Auburn/Alabama game.

After all, what self-respecting Alabamian could resist that?

Operation "Iron Snare" didn't round up all the suspects Deputies were looking for, but it got quite a few. They mailed out over 140 letters for people with at least 5-figures of unpaid child support.

We'll try and refrain from the multiple jokes that we can make over this story. It's not the first of its kind, we've read of it working in New York with Yankees tickets too.

It just goes to prove, in the state of Alabama, they'll do anything, often without thinking about order to get tickets to their version of a "Holy War".

We thank profusely, the folks at the Opelika-Auburn News for providing a video story as well:
