Phil Donahue's talk show, which will be taped next week at the Las Vegas Hilton, created traffic jams as residents lined up to get free tickets. "It was a mess to say the least," said police Sgt. Steve Tuggle. "There were some very anxious people out there waiting for tickets." KLAS-TV had planned to begin the ticket giveaway at 9 a.m. Monday, but motorists began lining up at 7 a.m. and the station started handing out the tickets at 8 a.m. Within two hours, the traffic was so bad that police asked the station to stop handing out tickets until another distribution site could be found. All 15,000 tickets to the five shows were given out by midafternoon.
