Drunken grim reaper arrested in Britain

By

MORECAMBE, England, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- A man in Morecambe, England, started the evening fully dressed and with friends, but ended the night dressed as the grim reaper, alone and under arrest.

Christopher Kelly said he was in Morecambe for a friend's birthday party, but became separated from the group after hours of heavy drinking, the Telegraph reported Thursday.

Kelly decided to take a walk on the beach, but lost his shoes, pants and jacket while escaping from boggy sand. The intoxicated reveler traveled across the street to Morecambe Town Hall, where he entered through an open window, disposed of his soiled underwear and came across the grim reaper costume.

He donned the costume and traveled to a local police station, where he waited for three hours until the facility opened and officers placed him under arrest.

Kelly was given a six month conditional discharge and fined after admitting to burglary and trespassing.

"This has all been the cause of great embarrassment for him. He is remorseful, ashamed and has moderated his drinking," said John Lee, Kelly's attorney. "He does not want to end up as the grim reaper again."
