Ocean City, MD (AP) - A Florida man arrested for disorderly
conduct while wearing a diaper on Halloween says he was pelted with
candy by teenagers and wasn't drunk at the time.
Maryland State Police say 47-year-old Joseph David DiVanna of
Sarasota, Fla., was arrested about 9:15 p.m. Sunday. State Police
say witnesses reported DiVanna cursed at adults and children in the
Fox Chapel neighborhood of West Ocean City as he tried to get them
to give him candy.
Divanna says he was wearing a full baby costume complete with
T-shirt, bib and bonnet and believes neighbors upset at his
trick-or-treating alerted police. Divanna said he had been
drinking, but wasn't drunk and was provoked by teens, who he said
were the ones acting disorderly.
