Frosty the Snowman Arrested For Assaulting Police Dog At Parade

Frosty the Snowman Arrested – A man wearing a “Frosty The Snowman” costume was arrested Saturday without incident during the annual Christmas parade event in Chestertown, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Frosty is accused of scuffling with police and kicking at a police dog.

Sgt. John A. Dolgos tells The Star Democrat of Easton that 52-year-old Kevin Michael Walsh became agitated when a dog-handling officer tried to escort the Snowman away from the crowd.

Walsh told The Associated Press that he has dressed as Frosty in the parade for at least 10 years.

He says he was wrongfully arrested.

He says an officer hassled him after he remarked about the police dog’s presence.

Walsh says he became agitated only after getting arrested.

“Frosty” was released on his own recognizance.
