Man Handcuffed By Police For Roaming A Beach During Storm Dressed As Michael Myers

A man was handcuffed by police after he was spotted roaming a beach dressed as masked killer Michael Myers from the Halloween horror movie franchise. Watch below:

Police in Galveston, Texas, were called after passers-by saw a mysterious figure wearing a boiler suit, mask and holding a bloodied knife as the Tropical Storm Nicholas approached on Monday (13 September).

But while some feared there was something sinister afoot, it turned out to be none other than local attorney Mark Metzger, who had dressed up as the character for a laugh.

The lawyer is no stranger to these kinds of stunts. Back in 2017, he went surfing in a business suit during Hurricane Harvey.

And in a post to his Facebook account, Mr Metzger explained his reasoning for taking on such a menacing character.

He wrote: "Bringing positive vibes to the gloom and doom out there, generating some laughter, helping people crack a smile, and restoring our faith in humanity through humor is 100 percent what I'm about.

"It's all I've been about my entire life. My methods might not work for everyone, but I guarantee I'll please more than I'll p*** off.

"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 (just released with a class c citation and still fuzzy on what exactly was illegal about my actions) - then I'd do it again all day every day."

In an interview with KTRK, Mr Metzger said people seemed to get a kick out of his outfit, with some coming up to him and posing for photographs.

He told the channel that some even started playing the theme music from the film.

But unfortunately, not everyone took it in the way it was apparently intended.

He said: "I guess there's some people out there that don't have a sense of humour or, you know, can't please them all."

And discussing his run in with the police, Mr Metzger likened it to something out of an episode of Scooby-Doo and said he didn't regret a thing.

He said: "It felt like a scene out of Scooby-Doo after they handcuffed me and pulled the mask off.

"If I had to do it all over again, I absolutely would."
