And now, today’s real news story that looks like it came straight out of a game of Mad Libs. We’ve got a grown man, a 12-year-old boy, a pet fish, a business deal, counterfeit marijuana, a bag of oregano and a punch in the head.
The boy went to the man’s house Saturday for a planned meeting where the boy was going to sell the man a fish. The man tried to pay for the fish with a bag of what he claimed to be weed, but the boy realized it was actually a bag of dried spices.
The boy confronted the man and was struck in the head, according to a news release from Chatham-Kent police.
We’ve also got a February 16th court appearance (or at least he does), but no information on how it went.
