If the Scarecrow only had a brain, this all could’ve been avoided.
On Halloween, South Simcoe police report that they received a call about a fight going down at Stroud Arena in Innisfil, Ont. When they arrived, officers quickly realized they weren’t in
Kansas Innisfil anymore, so to speak.
Police found a man dressed as the Tin Man being treated by paramedics. Three women, dressed as Dorothy, Glinda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch of the East, told officers that he had been punched by his “friend” the Scarecrow (who then presumably followed the yellow brick road the heck out of there).
“The Scarecrow didn’t have the brains to stick around, and ran away with the Cowardly Lion,” South Simcoe police wrote in a media release.
There’s no man behind a curtain yanking your chain here, this actually happened.
As for the Tin Man, he’s expected to make a full recovery. But officers did notice something a little strange while questioning him.
“Turns out the Tin Man didn’t have the heart to lay charges against his friend, and refused to tell the officers anything.”
Authorities believe alcohol was involved. The Munchkins, meanwhile, had no comment.
We certainly can’t think of a better time for Dorothy to chant “there’s no place like home.”
