Holiday decoration prompts call to police from concerned Germantown resident

Dec. 17, 2012

It could have been a case of "Up on the rooftop, slip, slip, slip" that caused a concerned Germantown resident to call police when what looked to be a person was hanging from a second-story gutter.

Not to worry. The person was actually a humorous holiday decoration.

According to the Germantown police:

A resident called police to report a subject hanging from a second-story gutter and was not moving in the W164 N11000 block of Kings Way at 3:50 p.m. Dec. 13.

Officers responded to the address and determined the subject in question was a holiday decoration.

An officer advised the homeowner of the complaint and the homeowner stated he will consider taking the decoration down.

The "guy hanging from a roof" holiday decoration has been around since at least 2009, as you can see here on Reddit.
