Country singer Jake Owen briefly handcuffed in Florida

VERO BEACH, FL (AP) - Country singer Jake Owen was briefly handcuffed outside a central Florida restaurant.

Indian River County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jeff Luther says a deputy on patrol saw Owen dancing in a mask outside a Vero Beach restaurant Saturday night.

Luther tells Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers that the deputy "didn't know what he had" when he handcuffed the "Alone with You" singer.

Luther says Owen was not arrested after people in the restaurant explained that Owen had been joking.

Owen posted on his Twitter page a picture of himself standing next to a sheriff's vehicle. The singer tweeted an apology Sunday, saying the sheriff's office "was doing their job."

In another tweet, Owen said, "I had too good of a time on Cinco de Mayo."
