South Simcoe Police say, “Sometimes, our officers see things that are hard to believe.”
Innisfil, Ontario – Police in Innisfil might have wished they were in Kansas after responding to reports of an assault involving people dressed as Wizard of Oz characters.
According to a South Simcoe Police media release, officers were called to the Stroud Arena on Saturday around 1 a.m. When they arrived, they found paramedics treating a male dressed as the Tin Man.
Three females, dressed as Dorothy, Glinda the Good Witch, and the Wicked Witch of the East, told police he was punched by a person dressed as the Scarecrow.
“The Scarecrow didn’t have the brains to stick around, and ran away with the Cowardly Lion,” the statement said.
Police added the person dressed as the Tin Man only had minor injuries and he refused to explain what happened.
Officers “believe alcohol was involved” in this incident.
A police spokesperson was unavailable for comment Monday evening.
