Michael May admitted that he tried to dig up his dad's grave in Lincoln County, Kentucky, and claimed that he did so because of a Bible verse (video below).
May told WLEX that he didn't do anything wrong and denied that he had violated a grave.
"Right now, I see the truth that he needs to be on the ground, not under it, not below it," May stated.
May's dad has been buried since 1978.

May was asked if he would do it again, and replied, "It's a possibility. If the truth doesn't come out and nobody sees the truth, yeah, I'll do it again."
Lincoln County Constable Delbert Mitchell claims he caught May in the act on Monday night in a cemetery next to a church.
"He started hollering out [Bible] verses at me," Mitchell said. "And he told me he was trying to dig his dad up, so his dad could go to Heaven."
May is scheduled to appear in court next Monday on charges of violating a grave, marijuana possession and public intoxication.
