There's No Place Like Home...

Only in Madison on Halloween...

'Flying monkey' allegedly punches man; victim in critical condition

Anyone who's seen The Wizard of Oz knows that flying monkeys are dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.

The flying monkey is still at large. I wonder if Stephen Colbert will do another "Monkey on the Lam" segment. It seems appropriate, since the case that inspired the series also happened in Madison.

UPDATE: The victim, Baraboo native and former UW basketball player Darin Schubring, is still in serious condition (recently upgraded from critical). Police are following up on some leads (apparently, the assailant was part of a group Oz-themed costume party). The flying monkey must have some pretty long arms to smack the 6' 10" Schubring in the temple.
