Yesterday, a man was captured on video walking down Galveston beach dressed as Halloween's Michael Myers.
Po-po said they reportedly received a call of a masked man with a knife with blood on it.
The man was briefly detained. They realized that the knife and blood were fake but he was cited for disorderly conduct and released.
But who is the mystery man behind the costume?
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...
Metzger said he did it as a way to try and find "a little bit of positivity in the gloomy doom." But it appears not everyone found it funny.
"I just don't think they appreciate it that much. I guess there's some people out there that don't have a sense of humor or, you know, can't please them all," he said.
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.
"It felt like a scene out of Scooby-Doo after they handcuffed me and pulled the mask off, like, 'I would have gotten away with it if wasn't for those meddling Karens, you know?" he said.
