Hampton, Va. – This was certainly no laughing matter for residents in one Hampton neighborhood.

Police say an 18-year-old man, Collin Marcus Craig Ivy, was charged after he was seen hiding behind a tree wearing a ghillie suit.

Authorities say he was planning to scare other people who were using the Mattheson Trail in the 300 block of Butler Farm Road. In addition to the suit, he was also planning to use an air horn to startle people police say.

He was arrested and charged with wearing a mask in public.
