Police: Frosty the Snowman kicked K9
Police said the man beneath the costume — identified as Kevin Michael Walsh, 52, of Chestertown — scuffled with officers and kicked a police dog.
Sgt. John A. Dolgos told The Star Democrat of Easton (registration is required to read the article) that Walsh became agitated when a dog-handling officer tried to escort him away from the crowd.
Walsh said the officer began giving him a hard time after he made a joke about the police dog’s presence at the parade.
Walsh has dressed as Frosty in the Eastern Shore town’s Christmas parade for at least 10 years.
