Halloween Decor Prompts 911 Calls
MUSTANG, Okla. (CNN) -- A Halloween prank is putting neighbors in a panic in Mustang, Oklahoma.
Johnnie Mullins decided to get "gruesome" this Halloween. His yard features grave sites and ghosts up in a tree, but the real shocker is the two fake bodies that appear to have met a bloody demise outside his house.
"Just trying to scare people, that's what I like to do," Mullins, says in defense of his 'Halloween prank'.
"My heart about came out of my chest. I thought, 'Oh my God,'" said neighbor Rebecca Fuentes. "If I think it's real, just think of what a child would think?"
The children "don't freak out or anything," Mullins insists, but it seems the adults are 'freaking out' enough for everyone.
One neighbor was apparently so persuaded by how lifelike the dead bodies look that they dialed 911.
But Mullins said the police officers and firefighters who responded to the call were nice about it and told him he wasn't doing anything illegal.
"It's Halloween. I don't think it's too far," said Mullins, who has since added another body to his display.
