St. George Unofficial Bank Holiday

Tuesday, July 25, 2006


MINNEAPOLIS -- They weren't looking for brains -- they were looking to party. But participants in a "zombie dance party" ended up in jail after getting arrested in downtown Minneapolis.

Police said the dancers were wearing thick makeup and staggering along like the living dead Saturday evening. A few carried backpacks with wires sticking out.

The "zombies" were arrested on suspicion of having "simulated weapons of mass destruction." A friend of the group said the suspicious devices were homemade stereos.

The dancers spent the weekend in jail. No charges were filed, but police said members of the group could face lesser charges, such as disorderly conduct.
