Kevin Walsh 'snowman' charges put on hold
CHESTERTOWN, Md. (AP) - "Frosty the Snowman" can return to being a jolly, happy soul - for now.
The Star Democrat of Easton reports that Kent County prosecutors put on hold charges against a man accused of scuffling with police and kicking a police dog while dressed as "Frosty" at Chestertown's holiday parade.
Fifty-two-year-old Kevin Walsh of Chestertown was charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct, failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order, and resisting arrest Nov. 26. Those charges and charges related to a December arrest were placed on the inactive docket Tuesday.
Kent County Assistant State's Attorney Hallie Salmi said Walsh will undergo a mental health evaluation and comply with treatment as recommended.
He must also stay away from the home of the patrolman who arrested him in November.
