This afternoon, local Daily Beast TV columnist and Televisionary founder Jace Lacob stumbled into a "surreal" scene that could very well inspire a future episode of Law & Order Los Angeles...and the tale was told 140 characters at a time on Lacob's Twitter feed.

In a Beverly Hills alley this afternoon, Lacob and his neighbor spot a teenage girl inside a garbage can. The neighbor spied her hand emerging first then drawing lid shut, he explains, and Lacob was summoned to the scene. He opened the lid, and stared right at the girl, who had "no expression."

When the cops came, they made the unidentified girl climb out for questioning. Lacob says she seems physically okay, and his neighbor thinks she lives down the street.
