He was arrested and charged with wearing a mask in public.


It's bizarre when they could've just used the ol' "disturbing the peace" bit instead.

To reiterate:

Cheron: Spad31: Wait...charged with wearing a mask in public? When the hell did that become a crime?

VIRGINIA Section 18.2-422:
Prohibition of wearing of masks in certain places; exceptions.
It shall be unlawful for any person over sixteen years of age while wearing any mask, hood or other device whereby a substantial portion of the face is hidden or covered so as to conceal the identity of the wearer, to be or appear in any public place, or upon any private property in this Commonwealth without first having obtained from the owner or tenant thereof consent to do so in writing. However, the provisions of this section shall not apply to persons (i) wearing traditional holiday costumes; (ii) engaged in professions, trades, employment or other activities and wearing protective masks which are deemed necessary for the physical safety of the wearer or other persons; (iii) engaged in any bona fide theatrical production or masquerade ball; or (iv) wearing a mask, hood or other device for bona fide medical reasons upon the advice of a licensed physician or osteopath and carrying on his person an affidavit from the physician or osteopath specifying the medical necessity for wearing the device and the date on which the wearing of the device will no longer be necessary and providing a brief description of the device. The violation of any provisions of this section shall constitute a Class 6 felony.

The way it reads, they arrested him before he performed his prank. So there is no disturbing the peace. They saw him in the suit and arrested him for the mask statute. And it's superfluous that he intended to disturb the peace.

he was seen hiding behind a tree wearing a ghillie suit.

If you are seen, doesn't that just make it a camo suit with strings on it?

jehovahs witness protection: So, my new Pennywise costume might not be accepted by the general public?


Maybe you should float the idea around with some of your friends and neighbors. I'm sure they'll appreciate it to include them in what sounds to me like some good old -fashioned FUN.

WyDave: Is that law originally an anti Klan attempt?


Bingo

While I agree the guy was being a dick. Charging him with that just stupid.

wambu: Cops are rarely amused when it's not them in the ghillie suit.


Don't want the public to mistake him for a cop. Are they going to charge him for impersonating a police officer?
