A Baltimore city police officer was charged with assault after he apparently got scared at a haunted house and pulled a gun on one of the characters.
Baltimore County police said Sgt. Eric Janik pulled his gun on a haunted house employee dressed up as the killer from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" at the Eastpoint Mall.
Police said the employee approached Janik after the haunted house tour was over Sunday night in a bid to get "one last scream."
Instead, Janik pulled his service weapon and pointed it at the man's chest, authorities said. The man dropped the chain saw, which had no chain and was not dangerous.
