Cops Arrest Overly Lubricated "Tin Man" Impersonator On Drunk Driving Charge

A costumed “Tin Man” impersonator was arrested Sunday for drunk driving, according to the New York State Police.

Nicholas Sherman, 31, was collared after cops responded to a 911 call about an “intoxicated male on private property” in Sullivan, a town about 15 miles east of Syracuse. The homeowner told police that “Sherman had drove to the residence with another male and was asked to leave.”

Seen at right, Sherman told police that he was in costume because he had just left a nearby business “where he was hired to portray a character from the Wizard of Oz.”

Sherman, arrested for drunk driving, registered a blood alcohol content of .19, more than twice the legal limit. He is scheduled for a June 20 court appearance on the misdemeanor charge.
