A Seattle man claims a group of leprechauns beat him up because he danced with a girl, KOMO News reports.
Officers rushed to the scene of a bar fight to find the man beaten and bloodied, according to The Daily Mail.
When asked to describe his attackers, the man responded “it was a bunch of leprechauns.”
As Harborview Medical Center treated the man for multiple head injuries, cuts and bruises, the police did not discover any trace of the angry little Irish tyrants.
This event marks the first major leprechaun sighting in the U.S. since they were last seen in Alabama circa 2006.
For those worried about dancing with women in the presence of leprechauns, it should be noted that a four leaf clover is all that is needed to destroy their lucky charms.
