Calvin Morett of 337 Pyramid Pine Estates allegedly interrupted the Saratoga Springs High School graduation by marching across SPAC’s stage in an inflatable 6-foot penis costume while diplomas were being given out, Saratoga Springs Police Sgt. Sean Briscoe said.
Morett purchased the full-body costume and sprayed parts of the 5,000 people in the crowd with Silly String, Briscoe said.
His motive? “He thought it would be funny,’’ Briscoe said.
Morett was ticketed for disorderly conduct, a violation, and will face the charges in City Court on Tuesday, Briscoe said.
Morett graduated from Saratoga Springs High School last year. He tried to streak away from law enforcement, but could not.
Perhaps its just me, but I find it to be pretty damned funny myself.
“Once I stopped laughing, he was pretty easy to catch because he was tripping on the lower portion of the costume,’’ said Briscoe, who made the arrest.
…still recovering from Courtney’s open house yesterday. It went very well and everyone seemed to have a good time. Glad it’s over though. It’s amazing how much stuff it takes to pull one of those off. I don’t remember my own open house being that much work, but then I wasn’t the parent back then either.
Today is a significant day in the Jenkins household for a couple of reasons. The first is due to the fact that my daughter, Courtney, has managed to make her way through the trials and tribulations of the public education system in Michigan to her very last class this morning. Final grades aren’t in yet, but all indications are that she will graduate and be unleashed upon an unsuspecting world in short order. She was so excited that she called me from her school at 9:20 this morning to let me know she was officially done. To say that getting to this point was a bumpy road is probably an understatement as she has a tendency to be like her father was when I was in school, but just as I managed to make my way to the finish line so has she and I am very proud of her.
The other reason today is significant is because it’s my Dad’s birthday today. He’s clocking in at a feisty 67 today and doing pretty well considering some of the health issues he’s had to deal with over the past couple of years. Be sure to drop by his blog and wish him a happy birthday.
The next couple of weekends will be busy ones as we’ll be apartment hunting and going to see Dad this weekend and then the next weekend is when Courtney’s graduation ceremony takes place and I have a LAN party the day before. After that, Court’s open house and then, hopefully, we’ll be moving into new digs. I’m getting worn out just thinking about it.
