Hug Triggers Hostage Scare at SE Houston Cricket Store


HOUSTON — A loving husband triggered a massive police presence on Tuesday at a Cricket Store in southeast Houston.

Police received a call that someone in the store was being held against their will.

Actually, the store manager was hugging her husband goodbye.

A passerby saw the embrace and thought she was being held hostage.


  1. I was held hostage in Houston from 1995 to 2001. Thankfully I never developed Stockholm Syndrome and managed to escape to Portland.

  2. I love the second comment at the link:
    This is how your kid ends up shot cuz people like to feel important.

    Too bad there was no mention of the races of the people involved. A lot of smaller cell phone places in Houston are run by Arabs and West Africans. That might have been a factor
