Doctor Who Extremist
Millennium Park was evacuated when a suspicious looking device, with batteries and wires coming out of it, was found.
But this was not some bizarre statement or failed act of teen terrorism; it was in fact a harmless bit of fun as the boy played with his friends.
Eighteen year old Emmett DeFrisco had been taking part in “Cosplay”- or Costume Play. This particular event was known as Soycon, which happens to be the “biggest Cosplay gathering in the mid west”.
And why would this be of any interest to you good readers visiting the K website? Because Emmett was dressed as the Doctor.
So at least the boy has taste even if he is scaring all the locals at the same time. He didn’t say which Doctor he was dressed as (he probably didn’t want to go into too much detail as he was being formally charged) or what purpose the object he had planted held. The object, by the way, turned out to be two bricks taped together.
