Seems the folks in Minneapolis don't really have a sense of humor…and are a bit harsh!
A group of seven friends are receiving a big pay out from the city of Minneapolis after the were arrested and thrown in jail for two days on charges of, wait for, dressing like zombies!
Okay, not really, but it is still excessive regardless!
Back in 2006, these seven friends dressed up as zombies and took to the city streets to protest what they called mindless consumerism. As the lurched through the town, police thought that one of them was carrying a bomb and so, they were arrested. Turns out, the "bomb" was a radio, but still, the creatures of the night were kept in lock up for two days.
Because officials went overboard, the city now has to pay $165,000 to the group, along with their lawyer.
Next time Minneapolis, remember you have to do something WRONG to wind up in jail. While dressing like a zombie might be creepy and unsettling, it is not a crime. If it was, there would be a laundry list of celebs in prison right now, starting with you Taylor Momsen! (Admit it, she kind of looks like a hooker zombie, right?)
