British Man Arrested for Pretending to Be a Ghost In a Cemetery

The Daily Mail reports that a British man was arrested for pretending to be a ghost in a cemetery by making "wooooooh" noises and flapping his arms at mourners. The offender, Anthony Stallard, 24, was fined about $125 for the stunt.

Prosecutor Tim Concannon said it was clear that Stallard was pretending to be a ghost—he "was throwing himself backwards, waving his arms about and going 'woooooooh.'" This was after he allegedly kicked a football at some gravestones. (That part of the case got thrown out.)

Stallard feels bad, according to his lawyer: "He has accepted that his behavior, if it had been outside of a cemetery, would not have been inappropriate. But inside a cemetery, while people are grieving for their loved ones, it might be."
