Brian Johnson: Curiosity leads to large crowds in Mobile's Creighton community. Many people bringing binoculars, camcorders, even camera phones to take pictures.
Ghetto Guy #1: To me it looks like a leprechaun. All ya got to do is look up in the tree. Who else see the leprechaun, say yay!
Brian Johnson: Eyewitnesses say the leprechaun only comes out at night. If you shine a light in his direction it suddenly disappears. This amateur sketch resembles what many people say the leprechaun looks like. Other find it hard to believe and have come up with their own theories and explanations for the image.
Ghetto Guy #2: My theory is its casting a shadow from the other limb.
Ghetto Woman #1: It could be a crackhead that got hold of the wrong stuff. And it told him to get up in the tree and play a leprechaun.
Ghetto Guy #3: We gonna get down to the bottom of this. Yeah he still on there guy don't be afraid. Don't be afraid, man.
Ryan Johnson: This guy helping to direct traffic says he's prepared for his encounter with the leprechaun. He's suited up from head to toe.
Ghetto Guy #4: This wards of spells right here. This is a special leprechaun flute. It's been passed down for thousands of years ago from my great great grandfather who was Irish. I just came to help out.
Brian Johnson: Others just came to get lucky in hopes a pot of gold may be buried under this tree.
Ghetto Guy #5: I'm gonna run a backhoe and uproot that tree. I wanna know where the gold at. I want the gold. Where is the gold?
Brian Johnson: This is Brian Johnson for NBC 15.
Woman Reporter: People will do anything for gold.
Man Reporter: It looks like somebody got a really good look at it.
