Trick-or-treaters call police about intoxicated Bigfoot

EMTs later transport costumed man to hospital

Posted

Halloween became a little too scary for a group of trick-or-treaters in Barrington. 

A Barrington resident called police at about 6:30 p.m. on Halloween night, after an intoxicated man wearing a Bigfoot costume joined in with a group of adults and children who were trick-or-treating in the Greenwood Avenue area.

The group of trick-or-treaters did not know who the man was and said they felt uncomfortable with him there.

Police officers responded to the scene and spoke to the people involved. Police then called for EMTs to respond to the scene — the EMTs transported the man wearing the Bigfoot costume to a hospital. 

No one was charged.
