Dance Troupe Causes Scare At Lincoln Tunnel

WEEHAWKEN, NJ (AP) - Members of a Florida dance troupe caused a scare when they dashed through the Lincoln Tunnel in their camouflage costumes.

The group was supposed to appear Wednesday on BET's "106 & Park'' show when they hit gridlock.

The five young women and three young men left their adult chaperones behind ran through the toll plaza and into the tube which links New Jersey and New York City.

Port Authority police were in hot pursuit.

Eternity Odom told The Journal of Jersey City she could see the lights of Manhattan when police caught her. The 16-year-old said police forced her to her knees and drew guns on the others.

Odom says she knew they "were in trouble.''

The Ladies of Envy group made its way back to Jacksonville, Fla.
