Haunted House Billboard Controversy

"We have not had one complaint, we've had a lot of people honking at us, waving, taking pictures with their phones," says Vona Adams, Owner "We have not had one complaint, we've had a lot of people honking at us, waving, taking pictures with their phones," says Vona Adams, Owner

Amarillo Police are asking for a part of a sign to be taken down. If not, they plan to seek disorderly conduct on the business. The sign is for Terror on 10th Street.

The sign has a fake body dangling from it, and hydraulics inside the dummy make it appear to be struggling.

It's a part of the promotion for the haunted house, and Vona Adams, the owner, doesn't think it's that big of a problem.

"We have not had one complaint, we've had a lot of people honking at us, waving, taking pictures with their phones. When your here at night, you hear all those people stop and take pictures. Nobody's complained, except one gentleman called today and complained."

Police approached Adams today, and she did offer a possible solution.

"We offered to put a sign underneath it that says do not dial 911, this is a joke. He said he would take it back to the city attorney's office. It's on a big billboard that says Terror on 10th, it's a joke."

Police say they have had numerous calls, and so has 911. They plan to bring the case to the city prosecuter on Tuesday. Right now the owners plan to keep the sign up.
