Cop shows up at woman’s house because her Halloween decor looked ‘too real’

When a cop saw this creepy Halloween decor, he had to double-check to see if it was real. 

TikToker @daniellelt93 hails from the United Kingdom. She had quite the laugh when a police officer mistook her prop for a real dead body. She assured him it wasn’t real, but the cop didn’t exactly take her word for it — the decor was just a little too convincing for comfort.

“Not everyday you get blue lights and sirens outside,” she wrote in the caption.
