Turner Broadcasting apologized Wednesday afternoon for any trouble they caused, saying that the "magnetic devices that pose no danger" had been placed in 10 cities -- including Boston -- to help promote Adult Swim's Aqua Teen Hunger Force series. "Turner Broadcasting is in contact with local and federal and law enforcement on the exact location of the billboards," Turner said in a statement.
