“Frosty The Snowman” Arrested At Christmas Parade

CHESTERTOWN, Md. (November 27, 2011)--A man in a "Frosty the Snowman" costume was arrested Saturday during the annual Christmas parade in Chestertown, on Maryland's Eastern Shore after police say he scuffled with officers and kicked at a police dog.

Sgt. John A. Dolgos told The Star Democrat of Easton that Kevin Michael Walsh, 52, became agitated when a dog-handling officer tried to escort him away from the crowd.

Walsh told The Associated Press that he has dressed as Frosty in the parade for at least 10 years.

He said he was wrongfully arrested and said an officer hassled him after he remarked about the police dog's presence.

He said he became agitated only after getting arrested.

Walsh was released on his own recognizance.
