Fortunately, the Minion’s brief, reckless escapade ended relatively safely, with just one car losing its sideview mirror. City council members in Santry are investigating whether any safety regulations were violated when inflating the minion, and are hopefully fortifying the town against a possibly impending giant Minion invasion as well.
