Man charged in Brockville, Ontario after fight over whether Earth is flat or round

Naturally.

Police and firefighters were called in after a heated discussion over the shape of the Earth reached fiery levels in eastern Ontario.

Police in Brockville say they were called to St. Lawrence Park on Monday after an intense argument between family members.

They say a woman who insisted the Earth was flat was locking horns with her boyfriend’s father, who argued it is round.

Investigators say the 56-year-old man grew so enraged that he started throwing things into their camp fire, including a propane cylinder.

Firefighters were called to put out the flames.

Police say the man took off and will face a mischief charge.

They say “neither party would change their views.”

What a shame.

  1. Two thoughts:

    1, I would have expected this north of Highway 7, not in Brockville.

    2, There should be an automatic exemption for any criminal delicts or civil torts done when arguing with Flat Earthers.
