A complaint about a naked mannequin in a downtown Beatrice storefront window has resulted in a possible lawsuit against the Beatrice police department.
The BEATRICE (NE) DAILY SUN online says last week police in that southeastern Nebraska town received a complaint about the nude mannequin in the window of Hannah’s Treasures- and police then attempted to get in contact with business owner Kevin Kramer to cover the mannequin up.
The story says that police were unable to reach Kramer- so officers took it upon themselves to cover up the store's window so Beatrice residents shocked by nude plastic models of not-so-anatomically-correct humans wouldn't be offended.
However- when Kevin Kramer caught wind of his windows being covered up by police- Kramer contacted a lawyer and threatened Beatrice police with legal action.
The police WERE going to charge Kramer with "disorderly conduct-" but dropped those charges against Kramer when they found out Kramer's possible legal actions against them.
Kramer was in the process of moving his business to Lincoln- so we'll watch to see how this tempest in a storefront window works out and let you know....
