Kevin Walsh, Frosty the snowman, arrested
From beloved Christmas character to alleged Chestertown Christmas parade criminal?
A man in a "Frosty the Snowman" costume was arrested Saturday during the annual Christmas parade in Chestertown, on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
He's accused of scuffling with police and kicking at a police dog.
Police say 52-year-old Kevin Michael Walsh became agitated when a dog-handling officer tried to escort him away from the crowd.
“I never touched the dog,” he says. "I might have faked a kick."
Walsh is maintaining his innocence, despite facing several misdemeanor charges. When pressed, he said the dog may have walked into his costume's mask.
“I'd like to be the snow man again because I've done such a good job all these years,” he says.
