Muirfield Village fountain overflows with bubbles in apparent prank prior to start of Memorial Tournament
The entrance to Muirfield Village, the host of this week’s Memorial Tournament, turned some heads on Monday morning.
According to WBNS, an overnight police officer spotted the club’s fountain on the intersection of Glick Road and Muirfield Drive overflowing with bubbles, and by Monday morning it was still overflowing onto the roads.
WBNS 10TV reporter Laura Borchers stopped by to take a few snaps of the apparent prank.
Bubbles in .@DublinOhio!
Overnite .@DublinPolice noticed them spilling onto Glick Rd & turned the Muirfield Village fountain off. I'm here waiting for the suds to dissipate. If you drive near the tournament you'll likely see the bubbles rolling in the road! pic.twitter.com/5elJ7OUUd0

Authorities told WBNS that the plan was to let the bubbles run their course and dissolve on their own. They are still investigating who is responsible.
