A man has been fined for pretending to be a ghost and other rowdy behaviour in a cemetery, according to police.
Anthony Stallard had been out drinking with friends when they went to Kingston Cemetery in Portsmouth where they started to play football.
A Hampshire police spokesman said that witnesses complained to police of Stallard using rowdy behaviour and pretending to be a ghost.
He said: "The witnesses reported the group engaging in rowdy behaviour and one of them throwing their arms in the air and saying 'woooooo'."
The 24-year-old pleaded guilty at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court to using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause distress.
Stallard, of Alverstone Road, Southsea, Hampshire, was fined £35 and ordered to pay a £20 victim surcharge and £20 in costs.
He was also given an extra three months added to a conditional charge for a previous charge of harassment which he was found to be in breach of, according to a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) spokeswoman.
A charge of causing criminal damage to the gravestones against Stallard was dismissed.
