BOSTON (Reuters) - A Maine attorney who released information in 2000 about President George W. Bush's drunken driving conviction was arrested on Tuesday after he dressed up as al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and waved a fake gun at traffic.
Police in South Portland, Maine, arrested Thomas Connolly, 49, of Scarborough, Maine, and charged him with criminal threatening. He was released on bail, local officials said.
Lt. Todd Bernard said the police department received calls about a man wearing Middle Eastern garb and a bin Laden mask and carrying fake dynamite standing along an interstate highway. When police arrived, they saw Connolly holding a gun.
"They ordered him to drop the weapon several times and he eventually complied," Bernard said.

people are gonna talk junk about the guy, but whatever. 2 years ago I was Bin Laden for Halloween.

I didn't wave my fake gun around in traffic, but I did have a fake AK. I also had these two girl friends of mine wear full turbines, follow me around, and cover their faces. I thought it was hilarious.

Agreed...

What the hell was this guy thinking? :lol:

Going to a Halloween event with a gun as part of your costume is just a wee bit different than walking rondomly along a highway waving a gun.
