Freddy Kruger arrested in Hollywood

If you surf the web, you’ve probably already encountered the Associated Press article about a man dressed like Freddy Kruger who was arrested in Hollywood for alledgedly stabbing another man. Among other places, you can find the article here at Fox News.

Basically, details are scarce but it appears that Josphe Zachary was booked for assault with a deadly weapon after “an altercation with a 37-year-old Hollywood man whose name was not released.”

The only thing I want to add is that dressing up as Freddy Kruger and wandering down Hollywood Boulevard is not as crazy as it may sound to those of you who do not live here. The incident took place near Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, which is a tourist attraction often populated by actors dressed as Hollywood icons, who pose for pictures with visitors. You can see an example in the photo here.
