After taking five cherry and whipped cream pies to the face on Saturday during the U.P. Firefighter’s Tournament, Deputy T.J. Peterson decided to share the fun with fellow deputies Teresa Chrisman and Mike Short. Pulling together scraps from the “used” pies, he was able to assemble enough pies to auction off a pie for each of his colleagues.

Dozens of spectators gathered around for the “pieing” to record the event on their phones.
