MASON CITY – A dangerous prank played on a deputy that could have gone horribly wrong resulted in a lecture early Tuesday.
According to the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy was driving near Carolina Avenue and 4th Street at about 3:27 AM when two subjects allegedly “jumped in front” of his patrol car and proceeded to flee.
The deputy – with the help of other officers – tracked down the two subjects and apparently gave them a stern lecture, advising them “of the danger that can cause”. They two subjects were “told not to do anything like that in the future.”
No arrests were made.
