A Fox 31 reporter and her cameraman were getting into an elevator at the Denver City and County Building this morning when they were approached by a man in a red, zoot-ish suit, who handed them a business card for a tanning spot. The man with the card, who had big curls in his hair and a diamond-studded pin that read "Jesus" across his chest, then walked away.
Inside the elevator, the television reporter told the cameraman that the guy with the card had a tip for them. After the news crew got out, two female Denver Police officers left in the elevator had a tip of their own about the man in the red suit.
