Man Arrested For Pretending to Be A Ghost

You know, people should be allowed to do what they want.  You like comic books?  Well, go ahead and be a comic nerd if that makes you happy.  Enjoy one night stands?  Go for it, doesn't hurt me.  Want to pretend that you are a ghost that haunts a cemetery?  I say have at it mister!  Just...maybe don't "haunt" people that are there to mourn.

Sadly though, that's just what one British man did, and he found himself arrested for it.

Be a ghost all you want, just don't be a mean one.

The Daily Mail reports that a British man was arrested for pretending to be a ghost in a cemetery by making "wooooooh" noises and flapping his arms at mourners. The offender, Anthony Stallard, 24, was fined about $125 for the stunt.

To prosecutor Tom Concannon it was clear that Stallard was pretending to be a ghost.  He was "throwing himself backwards, waving his arms and going 'wooooh.'"  He also allegedly kicked a football at some gravestones before his ghastly transformation.

According to his lawyer, Stallard does feel bad about the whole ghost thing:

"He has accepted that his behavior, if it had been outside of a cemetery, would not have been inappropriate. But inside a cemetery, while people are grieving for their loved ones, it might be."

So you hear that ghosts, get to haunting, just do it outside of a cemetery please.
