Some Dumbass In University Park Dressed His House as Ebola for Halloween

This was, unfortunately, inevitable. James Faulk has decorated his University Park home in the most tasteless way imaginable. It's got everything. Caution tape, waste disposal barrels, trash bags filled with "biohazards."

Faulk tells FOX 4 that police were called the first night he put up his display, so he added a "Happy Halloween" sign to his balcony. The items used in the display were purchased at a hospital auction for less than $150 he says. Faulk says he isn't finished with the display. He plans to board up his door and put a dummy in a hospital bed in the window soon.

Faulk, who talked to FOX cameras in a "CDC Trainee" uniform and a face mask, told the TV station that people offended by the display need to "lighten up."
