Waukesha police called for three women participating in ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Caller thought behavior was suspicious
You probably wouldn't think participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge would cause enough of a stir that someone would call the police on you.
But that's what happened for three women in downtown Waukesha.
According to the police blotter, police were called to the Kendal Lofts, 456 W. Main St., at 9:07 p.m. Aug. 24 after a caller saw three females reportedly taking their clothes off, taking pictures of each other and "giggling."
Police did not find any suspicious behavior.
Police just saw the females doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a social-media driven campaign where people film someone dumping a bucket of ice water on their head.
The challenge this summer raised more than $100 million in donations and awareness for ALS, often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," a progressive neurodegenerative disease.
