Man Hugging Wife Triggers Hostage Scare

This story reeks of Florida, but alas it took place in Houston, Texas.
A loving husband triggered a massive police presence on Tuesday at a Cricket Store in southeast Houston. Police received a call that someone in the store was being held against their will. Actually, the store manager was hugging her husband goodbye. A passerby saw the embrace and thought she was being held hostage.

There's actually a little bit more to add. The passerby told police the man was pushing everyone out of the store, but kept one woman inside and would not let her out. The woman told a TV station she and her husband got into a "huge argument" and the whole hostage situation was all a “misunderstanding.” No one was arrested and the woman went back to work.
