Short Takes : An Off-the-Cuff Autograph

January 23, 1991

DALLAS — Folk singer Sara Hickman signed an autograph for a police officer who handcuffed and arrested her after stopping her for an expired license plate, a newspaper reported.

Hickman was pulled over Saturday, the Dallas Times-Herald reported Tuesday. When the officer discovered an outstanding parking ticket, he handcuffed Hickman, whose new single is "I Couldn't Help Myself."

Once the officer, a Hickman fan, realized whom he had in custody, he removed the cuffs and asked for an autograph, the newspaper said. She complied, signing "Sara Hickman, jailbird."

"Thanks," the officer said, then slapped the cuffs back on.

The singer later was released on bond.
