It’s Wacky, but true! I’m sure this would never happen at the Hi-4H Haunted House. A haunted house in Essex, Maryland, is named “The House of Screams,” but it was the character of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre killer who ended up frightened when authorities say an off-duty Baltimore police officer pulled his gun and pointed it at the actor during a skit. Sgt. Eric Michael Janik was arrested and charged with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. The man playing “Leatherface” said the sergeant held his screaming daughter close to scary characters and that when it came time to give chase he went after the adults because the girl was crying. A police report says Sgt. Morrison approached “Leatherface” guy and pointed a black handgun at his chest.
