Brockville Police are looking for the man responsible for throwing a propane cylinder into a campfire during an incident Monday night. Around 10:30pm officers were called to St. Lawrence Park, where a 56-year-old man had been arguing with his son and his son’s girlfriend about the shape of the Earth.
Officers discovered the girl said the Earth was flat; the man insisted it was round. Becoming angry, the man threw their items into the fire, including the flammable propane tank. They did not come to an agreement about the shape of the planet. The man left the scene before officers arrived.
