Police Chief Bobby Beltner of the Grafton, WV Police Department Challenges Escape Artist Michael Griffin Saturday night May 27 at the Spirit of Grafton Festival.
"Im Bobby Beltner Chief of Police in Grafton, WV. I have been with the department for 24 years and the Chief since 2004. I caught your show last year while one of our Police Officers put you in a straitjacket, you got out and we really enjoyed your show, however I wish now to come up and lock you in several pairs of handcuffs both new and old along with leg irons inside an airtight waterproof container and secure you in a manner that I believe would be impossible for you to make your escape from the heavy irons or the container.
Please let me know if you are up to accepting this challenge."
Michael Griffin accepts the challenge with the condition that Police Chief Beltner must remain on stage along with Griffin's assistant in the event anything should go wrong including possible suffocation.
Challenge to take place Saturday on the Sprint Stage at the Spirit of Grafton Festival.
