Man dressed like Michael Myers spotted on Galveston beach as storm approached, arrested

Some residents in Galveston, Texas, received quite the shock on Monday as a man was spotted walking on a local beach in a Michael Myers costume.

The video was captured by an ABC13 reporter ahead of Tropical Storm Nicholas' expected landfall in Texas. While some may call it a nightmare, it was only a prank for the man behind the mask.

Mark Metzger, who moonlights as the mystery killer, works as a Galveston-area lawyer during the daytime. His prank caused so much fright that even the local police were contacted.
