We know this guy! He's not a villain, he's a good dude!
Our friend Mark Metzger was arrested on Galveston island yesterday for walking around on the beach in a Michael Myers costume before the hurricane.
His name is Mark Metzger, a Galveston-area lawyer who is no stranger to doing these things. His prank caused a stir on the beach, but it did not last for long.
On Monday, Galveston police said officers received a call of a masked man with a knife with blood on it. When police arrived at the scene, they detained Metzger and learned the knife and blood were fake. Police said Metzger was cited for disorderly conduct and released.
Meanwhile, Metzger said he did it as a way to try and find "a little bit of positivity in the gloomy doom."
While it's something he has done before, Metzger added that it was the first time one of his stunts was met with "lethal force," but that he did cooperate with officers' commands. He even compared his arrest to something out of an episode of Scooby-Doo.
