Man arrested for pouring suspected maple syrup onto sidewalk

Police have arrested a man in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, for pouring what's believed to have been a pool of maple syrup onto a sidewalk near the Convention Center.
Police were called at around 10am on Thursday, and found a strange "unknown, sticky liquid" covering a four-foot area, police say. A city road crew had to be called in to clean up the liquid.
"They think it might've been a syrup - maybe maple syrup," said city spokesperson Kelly Anderson. "But they don't know for sure what it was." Witnesses pointed out the man they said was responsible, and police arrested the 56-year-old for mischief.
"He caused resources to have to be deployed to clean this stuff up," said Constable Steve Welton. City crews had to lay down "absorbent material" to clean up the mess, Anderson said. The man was also carrying a small amount of marijuana and was found to be breaching a probation order, police said.
