Minneapolis reaches $165k settlement with zombies

Police arrested a group of friends dressed as zombies as they danced through downtown Minneapolis in 2006. They happened to have bags with wires sticking out that police said simulated WMD's.

The seven said they were protesting what they called mindless consumerism. They had white powdered faces with dark makeup around their eyes and were walking in a stiff, lurching fashion.

The city thinks police acted appropriately but figured it would be better to settle than risk a trial.

(Yes, as a matter of fact, there are lovely mugshots in the link!)
