DONORA, Pa., Nov. 6 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man dressed in a Halloween jail costume ended up arrested and in a real jail uniform, authorities say.
Donora, Pa., police were summoned to investigate a possible abandoned vehicle in front of an apartment late Halloween night, The (Washington, Pa.) Observer-Reporter said.
Upon seeing police arrive, Anthony James "Jinx" Law, 26, began running, causing officers to give chase. They scuffled with him and used a stun gun and pepper spray in their efforts to subdue him, police stated in an affidavit.
His friend, Gregory Moon, 22, wearing a black-and-white Halloween jail costume allegedly began yelling obscenities at the arresting officers, telling them to free Law, the newspaper reported Thursday.
After police arrested Moon, they determined the vehicle they initially came to investigate belonged to Moon. They also discovered a pistol on the front passenger seat, which had been stolen, police stated in an affidavit.
The two Charleroi men, who have a history of gang tie and violent crime, were remanded to the Washington County jail on $250,000 bond and given regulation jail jumpsuits, court records show.
