Man: I Was Arrested Over Halloween Decorations

CANTON, Ohio -- A Canton man accused of burning a cross in front of his home says he was arrested in a misunderstanding over his Halloween decorations.

Thirty-six-year-old Shane Helson says he wanted to make his annual yard display more authentic and set fire to the T-shaped wooden stand that holds up his scarecrow so it would look more weathered.

The fire department responded Tuesday night, and a police complaint says Helson continued to spray lighter fluid on the wood after authorities arrived.

He was charged with keeping a disorderly house. If convicted of the misdemeanor, he'd face up to 30 days in jail and a $250 fine.

Helson is white, as is next-door neighbor Stephanie Blankenship. But her husband is black, and Blankenship says she felt intimidated.

Freddy Krueger killed 5 people but has not been arrested yet.  :'(

P.S. I was one of the few who did not mind the that children's holiday. Although the Serbian language is called "Night of witches" and yet the in same day Christina Orthodox Church celebrates the Holy Apostle Luke, after that crime I'm against Halloween to come in Serbia.
