Not unless what I read was a shorter part of that.
I particularly remember it because in the end there is a pair of ballet
dancers that are attached to ball and chain. And they throw off the chains
and find that they start floating in the air while dancing. The sherrif
comes in and shoots them down and is proud of the fact that she's stopped
things before they got out of hand.
Damn my memory is fuzzy...
