A New York police department “arrested” winter Friday for sticking around for so long.
The Depew Police Department sent out a Facebook post notifying winter that it had been placed under arrest, reports the Associated Press.
The police department said winter had the “right to remain silent” and that if winter cooperated with them, the department would “look past” winter’s “past transgressions.”
“Any further snow you produce will be held against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney, but only if you turn in the groundhog that predicted six more weeks of winter,” the department wrote in a Facebook post. “If you are willing to work with us, we are willing to look past your most recent transgressions over the course of this past week. The choice is yours.”
New York has experienced a long winter this year, with upstate New York seeing snow last week.
