City cop nabs Texas Massacre character, then gets busted himself

Somewhat hilariously, a police officer from the Baltimore area mistook a man dressed as Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre as a real criminal, pointing his gun at the man. All of this was during a haunted house tour in a mall. My favorite quote:

Baltimore County police tell me that the sergeant, Eric Michael Janik, 36, went through a haunted house at the Eastpoint Mall Sunday night and apparently didn’t like or didn’t understand that the massacre character chases after people at the end.

Whoops! And to add to the embarrassment, the story was published nationwide! Ha. Oh those feel-good stories…
