Man arrested for pouring syrup on sidewalk
Police were called around 10 a.m. Thursday, and found a strange “unknown, sticky liquid” covering a four-foot area on the corner of Summers Lane downtown, police say.
A city road crew had to be called in to clean up the liquid. “They think it might’ve been a syrup — maybe maple syrup,” said city spokesperson Kelly Anderson. “But they don’t know for sure what it was.”
Well why didn’t they taste it?
Witnesses pointed out the man they said was responsible, and police arrested the 56-year-old for mischief. “He caused resources to have to be deployed to clean this stuff up,” said Const. Steve Welton.
City crews had to lay down “absorbent material” to clean up the mess, Anderson said.
I bet it was honey. I bet I know where the honey came from, too.
