LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Out-of-towners visiting Las Vegas for the extended Presidents Day weekend were given the opportunity to seek relief for any awkward situations they faced.
Thanks to a de facto president in a powdered wig, those people who may have had too much fun in Las Vegas were given "official" presidential pardons Monday. The pardons were given at McCarran International Airport as a last resort of washing those incidents clean before leaving the tourism mecca.
The pardons were part of Las Vegas' long-standing and well-known "What Happens Here" campaign.
Vine videos of those pardons were also created, reaching out to social media users while also referring to local celebrities on some Vegas-based offenses.
"We know you were no 'angel' this weekend. We're here to make your weekend disappear," said the president in reference to Criss Angel.
