Wanted Pa. man arrested wearing 'inmate' costume

22-year-old Gregory Moon was still wearing the black-and-white striped costume when he was arraigned early Monday

Associated Press

DONORA, Pa. — A western Pennsylvania man was wearing a jail inmate costume when police arrested him on a weapons charge and allegedly for insulting police who came to arrest his friend on Halloween.

The Observer-Reporter of Washington, Pa. reports Thursday that 22-year-old Gregory Moon was still wearing the black-and-white striped costume when he was arraigned early Monday. He was given a bright orange jumpsuit when a district judge sent him to the Washington County Jail where he has yet to post $250,000 bond.

Police say Moon, of Charleroi, was arrested when they answered a disturbance call at a housing project in Donora about 2:45 a.m. Monday. Police say they arrested a friend of Moon's who allegedly fought with officers, and then nabbed Moon on a warrant for allegedly possessing a stolen gun when he allegedly yelled at police.
