A British man was arrested for pretending to a ghost in a cemetery by making "woooooooh" noises and flapping his arms at mourners.

Yikes.

Anthony Stallard, 24, was fined about $125 for his stupidity.

This after he was seen kicking a soccer ball at gravestones with a friend, according to the Daily Mail.

According to prosecutors, it was clear that Stallard was pretending to be a ghost.

He "was throwing himself backwards, waving his arms about and going 'woooooooh,'" prosecutor Tim Concannon told the court.

For his part, Stallard does feel bad.

"He has accepted that his behavior, if it had been outside of a cemetery, would not have been inappropriate. But inside a cemetery, while people are grieving for their loved ones, it might be," his attorney said.
