Early Halloween Decoration Prompts 911 Calls

KHQ - "A police department in Tennessee is getting into the Halloween spirit a little early thanks to one house's realistically frightening driveway decor.

The Greene County Sheriff's Department in Greeneville, Tennessee, posted a photo on their Facebook page early Wednesday letting everyone know that what looked like a dead body in a driveway with bloody hand prints on the garage was in fact a Halloween decoration and not a corpse. The department had apparently been getting a number of phone calls to report the "suspicious person laying in the driveway."

"ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! For those of you driving on Chuckey Pike in Greene County: THIS IS A HALLOWEEN DECORATION! Do NOT call 911 reporting a dead body. Instead, congratulate the homeowner on a great display," the sheriff's office wrote Wednesday.

Given that Halloween is still more than a month away, it's understandable why passersby would be worried."
