Texas Lawyer Mark Metzger Awarded Donkey Of The Day For Roaming Texas Beach With A Knife Dressed As Michael Myers

Texas Lawyer Mark Metzger Awarded Donkey Of The Day For Roaming Texas Beach With A Knife Dressed As Michael Myers

A lawyer dressed as a horror movie character on a Texas beach said his eccentric actions were just a prank to make people smile.

But it also led to the arrest of Mark Metzger, the Galveston attorney some people saw roaming a local beach in a Michael Myers costume. He was cited for disorderly conduct and released by Galveston police, KTRK reported.

Police received a call Monday about a masked man holding what appeared to be a bloody knife while walking on the beach ahead of Tropical Storm Nicholas, according to The Daily News in Galveston.

Officers found Metzger dressed as the serial killer from the “Halloween” movies and put him in handcuffs before determining the blood and knife were fake, the newspaper reported.

Metzger said in a Facebook post Monday night he was “still fuzzy on what exactly was illegal.”

“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% what I’m about,” Metzger said. “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 piss off.”

Interviewed by KTRK, he compared his arrest to a scene out of another popular franchise — this one a little more kid-friendly.

“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 told the station.

He said in his Facebook post he would pull the prank again “all day every day.”
