A 52-year-old resident of Chestertown, previously arrested for the MD crime of assault in November, 2011 while dressed as the favorite holiday character Frosty the Snowman, is once again in trouble with the law, according to a WBOC.com news story. The man who, according to Chestertown police “makes bad decisions,” was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and related charges following an incident that occurred in front of the man’s home on High Street.
According to the report, police passed the man’s house twice and as the 52-year-old walked toward their vehicle, one of the officers proceeded to get out of the car. ‘Frosty,’ who was not in costume at the time, became “irate and angry” and was using profanity, according to the police officer’s statement. Police suggested he go back inside his home and reportedly gave him many opportunities to cease and desist, but the man continued to act inappropriately and was therefore arrested.
The Chestertown resident believes police went overboard arresting him, but admits using profanity in the presence of the officers was a mistake. Following the arrest, he was released on his own recognizance. In November, the man was arrested for allegedly attempting to kick a police dog during a Chestertown Christmas parade.
