The police received a call from a local resident when they saw attorney Mark Metzger dressed as the serial killer from the “Halloween” film franchise, Michael Myers. They said he was wandering in the sand with what looked like a bloody knife.
After handcuffing Metzger in the Tropical Storm, officers realized the knife and blood were fake, according to Sgt. Stacy Papillion.
He was released from jail with disorderly conduct. Metzger posted on his social media that he was “fuzzy” as to why he had been arrested, writing, “So if taking a silly walk down the beach during a storm in a costume, and subsequently being arrested for disorderly conduct accomplished any of that …. then I’d do it again all day every day.”
