Patrick Springer of The Associated Press reports: Some fans who turned out for a party before Monday's [October 29] OZZY OSBOURNE-ROB ZOMBIE concert [in Fargo, North Dakota] found out they'd been handed tricks instead of treats by the law when sheriff's deputies crashed the party.

The approximately 40 people who answered letters of invitation turned up at The Venue at Playmakers for what they thought would be a festive party before the big concert at the Fargodome.

The Venue event was sponsored by PDL Productions — a bogus firm created by Paul D. Laney, the Cass County sheriff, to help catch some people who had ignored court summons and child support payments or failed to pay fines.

Instead of partying down, attendees were arrested on outstanding warrants. "It was more of a warrant party," Laney said.

"Some actually thought it was pretty funny," he added. Others were upset, with a couple who turned hostile. "I think they were upset with themselves for being had."

Zach, why is this bullsh**? People who break the law and ignore court summons can't complain when the cops find new and creative ways to find and catch them.
I think this is freaking hilarious, kudos to the sheriff for the ingenuity.
