Drew Peterson Calls Talk Show

In an attempt to pass time behind bars, former police officer and murder suspect Drew Peterson did what any self-respecting man would do: he uses his one phone call to dial into a talk radio show. Peterson, who is being held in the Will County jail in Illinois on a $20 million bond, placed a collect call to WLS Radio’s Mancow & Cassidy show today to test out his standup comedy material, joking about “bling” handcuffs, prison showers and the always hilarious topic of conjugal visits. After being charged with first-degree murder in the 2004 death of his wife and his status as a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, stage fright and hecklers are probably the last thing on his mind.
