Lahoma, Oklahoma, Mayor Theresa Sharp's husband Cary reportedly attended a Halloween party that resembled a Ku Klux Klan meeting on Oct. 31 (video below).
Cary, who wore a white robe and hat to the party, told News 9, "We just thought it would be something kind of funny. It's not funny at all."
"Sit around the bonfire and drink a couple of beers and thought well, my buddy his last name is White and the subject got brung up," Cary added. "We just thought it'd be something to do and it's not something to do. I am embarrassed. I've shamed my family and friends and I apologize for that."
A picture was taken of the event and posted to social media, where it went viral. A female witness called the police on the bizarre party.
“I advised the group why I was there, and that although I know it was a joke that they save them and myself anymore headaches to not burn anymore crosses,” Garfield County Deputy Aaron Moore wrote in his report, noted Enid News. Cary and his buddies denied there was a cross-burning.
“It was a prank gone bad,” Theresa told the newspaper. "I was out trick-or-treating with my son, and I in no way support the activities that occurred."
“This is ridiculous, really,” Cary insisted. “It was a Halloween night.”
