A drunk man was arrested after sheriff's deputies said he tried to dig up his late father's grave so that he could have an argument with him.
Lincoln County Sheriff's Deputies arrested Michael Dale May on Monday night at the Pilot Baptist Church cemetery in Stanford, Kentucky.
WAVE reported that the 44-year-old man told authorities that his father died about 30 years ago and was buried at the cemetery, which is located behind the church.
According to the cemetery's registry, 13 people with the last name of May are buried at that location.
Willis Green May was the only man that died about 30 years ago on Nov. 23, 1983, but it's not clear if he was the intoxicated man's father.
In 2002, a man named Eugene May was the last person ever buried at the cemetery, according to the registry.
May was charged with violating a grave, public intoxication and possession of marijuana.
As of Tuesday afternoon, May had not been released from jail according to Lincoln County records.
