This guy is totally a ghost. (Via Portsmouth News)

Anthony Stallard, 24, is an unemployed ghost who likes to hang out at cemeteries, but he recently was arrested at one for pretending to be a ghost


According to the Daily Mail, he was kicking a soccer ball at some graves at Kingston Cemetery in his home town of Portsmouth, and then he was seen "throwing himself backwards, waving his arms about and going 'woooooooh'.

I'm convinced. Maybe this guy wasn't pretending to be a ghost, maybe he IS a ghost. 

Yes, the classic "wooooh" could be done by a really insensitive human, but what about the soccer ball kicking? It all makes sense. Maybe, just like in the movie Ghost, he is a new ghost who was practicing moving things in the physical realm. 


Apparently, there were some mourners there who found his behavior unsettling, and called the cops. He was arrested for "using threatening or abusive words or behavior likely to cause distress."

Prosecuting attorney Tim Concannon said, "I'm assuming he was pretending to be a ghost."

Well, Mr. Prosecutor, you know what happens when you assume, right? You miss out on the chance that you're dealing with a real fucking ghost over here. 

Stallard didn't fight the charges, though. He pleaded guilty and admitted that some people could find his behavior distressing. 

Maybe he felt bad for upsetting the living, but more likely he just decided to plead out because that is a lot easier than having to explain the afterlife.
