April Fool's Hummer doesn't leave woman laughing

Shannon Castillo isn't laughing about her April Fool's Day Hummer. She's suing a Bakersfield, California, area radio station over a toy Hummer H2 she won as the grand prize in a contest.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Shannon Castillo isn't laughing about her April Fool's Day Hummer. She's suing a Bakersfield, California, area radio station over a toy Hummer H2 she won as the grand prize in a contest. Instead of winning the keys to a real Hummer, Castillo and another listener were given radio controlled toys on April Fool's Day. Castillo says it was a humiliating experience. Castillo's lawyer, Scott Perlman, says KBDS violated California law and FCC regulations by misrepresenting the prizes being offered. Her suit asks for $60,000, about the cost of a Hummer H2.
