It's a bit after midnight on Halloween and police in Innisfil, Ontario, receive a call. There's been a fight. They arrive to find a man dressed as the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz. Paramedics are attending to his injuries. (Our experts have generated a high-quality photo illustration of the scene, below.)

Three witnesses are nearby. Dorothy, Glinda the Good Witch, and the Wicked Witch of the East tell the officer that the Tin Man was "punched by his friend the Scarecrow."
