Courthouse Partially Evacuated for Coconut
The Frederick News Post ^ | 3/7/2012 | Staff Reports

Posted on 03/07/2012 10:01:31 AM PST by RetroSexual

A coconut lying next to a column near the Frederick County courthouse caused police and fire personnel to evacuate the outside area and one inside office for about 20 minutes today. A courthouse deputy on his morning perimeter check spotted the coconut about 7:55 a.m. It looked like it had been sliced down the center and put back together, according to a Frederick County Sheriff’s Office press release.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s bomb squad was called in to assist members of the sheriff’s office, the Frederick Police Department and the Frederick County Fire and Rescue Services in determining whether the tropical fruit was a danger to the public, the release stated.

Members of the bomb squad determined the coconut was not dangerous.

Deputy State Fire Marshal Matt Wrenn is handling the investigation.

At the request of the coconut or because of the coconut?

In Miami they have santeria and voodoo sacrifices outside the courthouse. Terps are amateurs.

I hope they don’t start outlawing coconuts because of this.

Because when coconuts are outlawed, only outlaws will have coconuts.

It was carried there and dropped off by an African swallow.

"Members of the bomb squad determined the coconut was not dangerous."... However...it exploded when Clouseau arrived.
