8:27 am | January 23, 2013

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Police in Clarksville have arrested a man who stumbled around a woman’s yard, repeatedly yelling “zombies.”

The Leaf-Chronicle reported police went to a home after the woman who lived there called them late Saturday. Officers said they found 22-year-old David Cunningham shouting about zombies and smelling strongly of alcohol. He had slurred speech, blood shot eyes and — said the police report — wasn’t making sense.

He was charged with public intoxication.
