You've probably seen the story of Galveston, TX lawyer Mark Metzger, who caused a commotion earlier this week walking the beach dressed as Halloween slasher Michael Myers (complete with fake bloody knife) while the city braced for Tropical Storm Nicholas. According to Blabbermouth, he ran into Slayer frontman Tom Araya in the middle of the stunt. Metzger was psyched to meet Araya and get some photos with the metal icon. Galveston residents and police were less psyched. Seeing the masked man walking the beach with what appeared to be a bloody knife freaked people out, the police were called, Metzger was detained and ultimately cited for disorderly conduct before being released.
Metzger says it was just meant to be a little bit of fun in the midst of the all the storm-related doom and gloom. Check out the fun photos and more on his intentions in the social posts below.
