Michael MayLINCOLN COUNTY, KY – Police in Kentucky have arrested 44-year-old Michael May after he was caught trying to dig up his father’s grave so he could argue with the dead man’s corpse.

Lincoln County constable Delbert Mitchell noticed a truck parked at the Pilot Baptist Church cemetery at around 10:30 p.m. Monday night and went to investigate. He would find May using a shovel and a pickaxe to dig up his father’s grave.

Mitchell said that when he asked May what in the hell he was doing, May began “hollering out verses” from the Bible and explained that he was trying to dig up his old man in order for his deceased father to go to heaven.

May’s father died more than three decades ago after being beaten to death at a sawmill while drinking with co-workers. According to Greg Haynes, the pastor of Pilot Baptist Church, May explained that his “Daddy didn’t do things right,” and he needed to be dug up in order to go to Heaven.

“He needs to be on the ground. Not under it,” May would later tell a reporter from jail, adding that the Bible told him to do this and that he may try to do it again if given the possibility.

People familiar with May say his latest actions do not seem like him. Not surprisingly, May seemed to be under the influence of drugs and\or alcohol at the time of his arrest. He’s currently being held at the Lincoln County jail on charges of public intoxication of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and violating graves.

I say we cut the guy a break. Digging up your dad’s corpse so you can have a little chat is a hell of a lot better than digging up a dead teenager so you and your buddies can fuck it.
