BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Investigators are seeking tips to solve a prank that disrupted traffic for more than two hours on Interstate 94 in southwestern Michigan.

Someone placed two cables across the interstate Saturday in Berrien County. Benton Township fire Lt. James Fogarty says it took time to determine whether the cables were carrying electricity.

He says it wasn’t a “laughing ordeal.”

The Herald-Palladium reports that cars and trucks had to get off the interstate. American Electric Power, which has power lines in the area, was called for assistance.

The cables were tied to trees at one end and connected to a spool at the other.

Anyone with information is urged to call (269) 926-8221.
