The North Platte police were dispatched to a William Ave. home on a complaint of a wedgie. One man's son gave a wedgie to their neighbor's child. The officer talked with all concerned and calmed the situation down, no one was cited or arrested.
"You might get away with that in Lincoln or Omaha, but we're not going to allow wedgies in North Platte", the spokesman said. The spokesman also said they planned to put a stop to wedgies before they escalate to full-blown melvins or atomic wedgies.
A wedgie is the condition of having one's underwear pulled up so that it goes between the buttocks. Thus the phrase "giving a wedgie."
