Presidential candidate Alan Keyes was restrained with handcuffs and briefly taken into custody by Atlanta police when he attempted to enter WSB-TV Studios where the March 3rd Republican primary debate was being taped. Although Keyes was not formally arrested, he was detained in a police squad car for approximately 20 minutes before being dropped off in a parking lot, where he used a pay phone to call supporters and was eventually picked up by Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell. Keyes is considering suing the WSB television officials for unlawfully barring him from the debate.
