So crazy it's true

When we first heard about this story, I thought it was some teenager's idea of a prank. Since when does a 17-year-old run into a public place with a chain around his ankle saying he's been held prisoner?

Turns out, it happens today. In Tracy.

After calling Matt Robinson at the city, I learned that this made-for-TV event was legit. Police arrested two people in connection with the alleged imprisonment and are desperately seeking more clues — turns out traumatized captives don't often provide the most complete list of details.

Keep checking the TP Web site for more updates. We'll be on this story for the duration...
