LAHOMA, Okla. (AP) — The husband of a small Oklahoma town's mayor is apologizing for a Halloween prank in which he and others dressed as members of the Ku Klux Klan and held a cross in front of a fire to make it appear it was burning.
Cary Sharp, husband of Lahoma Mayor Theresa Sharp, told KWTV that he's embarrassed and that he shamed his family and friends.
Garfield County Sheriff Jerry Niles told the Enid News & Eagle that no law was broken, but said the prank was "very poor judgment." Niles says costumes were removed and the fire was extinguished at the request of deputies.
Theresa Sharp said she was not at the party and that she "in no way" condones the activity.
