INNISFIL, Ont. - He doesn't appear to have used that brain the Wizard gave him.

Police say officers dispatched to a fight call early Saturday in Innisfil, Ont., found a man dressed as the Tin Man from "The Wizard of Oz" being treated for injuries.

South Simcoe police say witnesses at the Stroud Arena — who were dressed as Dorothy, Glinda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch of the East — said the Tin Man had been punched by his friend the Scarecrow.

In a release, police say "the Scarecrow didn't have the brains to stick around, and ran away with the Cowardly Lion."

Turns out "the Tin Man didn't have the heart to lay charges against his friend, and refused to tell the officers anything." He was treated for minor injuries.

Police say they believe alcohol was involved.
