Missing Life-Size Obama Statue Found on Park Bench with Booze
Pennsylvania resident Tiffany Bruce checked into a hospital after she discovered that her life-size Obama statue was missing.
The $1,249 statue that she kept outside her house on a bench was a staple in the neighborhood, as the family gave him a Halloween costume and dressed him up as Santa Claus for Halloween.
“I peeked my head out the door, and Obama’s gone, and I kind of went into a panic. I couldn’t breathe, and I had to go to the hospital,” Bruce told KFOR, a local news station.
The statue was found Thursday at the Francis E. Walter Dam, sitting on a bench with a six pack of beer.
A KFOR viewer emailed the news station a photo of the found statue, the report of which will be featured Thursday night on the local news in Pennsylvania.
*UPDATE* Reporters are now saying that the Obama statue was spotted with "Twisted Tea," not beer as previously reported.
