FORT BRAGG, N.C. (WTVD) -- A soldier dressed as a suicide bomber for Halloween caused an emergency response on Fort Bragg, officials said Saturday evening.

The incident happened on Friday night at an access control point, according to a Facebook post sent out by public affairs.




It's unclear which gate the soldier tried to enter, but officials say he was dressed in a simulated explosive vest. An emergency response was put into place, with officials clearing the scene and closing the gate for an extended period of time.

Although post officials believe the soldier was dressed as suicide bomber for Halloween, the incident remains under investigation.

It has also prompted a warning to active duty personnel and their families.

"The Fort Bragg Garrison Commander wants the community to have a safe and fun Halloween; however costumes of this sort are not allowed on Fort Bragg," a statement read. "All costumes should be appropriate in dress and tasteful."

The statement goes on to say soldiers, families and civilian government employees should not dress in distasteful costumes off post, either.

I have had to make that phone call more than once. "Yes, Sir. Need you to come down to the MP Station.....Yes, Sir. I know it is kind of BS that they picked him up for peeing on the side of the road.....Yes, Sir, but he had not been peeing on the cars as they passed by we would have just took him home.....See you in a bit." True story.
