MESA COUNTY, Colo. A grave digger could face criminal charges after being fired when video surfaced that showed him dancing on a grave.
Christopher Redd was fired from his job as a grave digger in Mesa County after playing a shovel like a guitar while dancing on an empty burial vault.
Redd, 27, of Clifton, said it was part of an attempt to win tickets for a rock music festival. He said the taping happened before a funeral service was held at the site and that no remains were in the grave.
The Mesa County Sheriffâ€™s Department is investigating the incident.
Redd says the performance was approved by a superior.
The charge in the case that might be pursued is a misdemeanor of desecration of venerated objects.
