There Are Towns Where You Can Get Arrested for Trick-or-Treating If You’re Over 12?

There’s really nothing more obnoxious than a bunch of high school kids trick-or-treating on Halloween . . . I get that.  But this still seems like an extreme way to stop them.

 

 

There are a handful of towns where kids over 12 who go trick-or-treating can actually get ARRESTED.

 

 

One of those towns is Chesapeake, Virginia.  They’ve got a statute that says anyone over 12 who goes trick-or-treating can be charged with a misdemeanor that carries up to a $100 fine . . . and SIX MONTHS in jail.

 

 

So, you know, if your teenager is planning to go trick-or-treating, you should probably go over the local city codes with them first to make sure they don’t wind up with a record.
