Murphy has a funny way to show up.
I had this buddy who had just turned onto his block on his way home when he noticed a half dozen squad cars and a van in front of the place he and his roomates were renting. He drove on, called his roomates from a nearby payphone, and heard them explaining in hushed tones that the neighbors were getting arrested for their backyard garden and that he and the other roomate were hiding on the kitchen floor to avoid drawing attention to themselves.
As the circus was packing up to leave town, the braver roomate left the kitchen to ask one of the guys loading the van "what was up with that?". They were filming an episode of "cops" in Nashville, TN. On the episode you can see the reason those boys were hiding; in the background of the outdoor "garden" shots, you can clearly see my buddy's roomate's "garden" just over the fence.
The other roomates were somewhat insistant that he remove it the day of the filming.
