An Oregon driver with bloody makeup on his face for Halloween killed a pedestrian in the early morning hours after the holiday, authorities said.

Matthew Freeman, 21, took a real mugshot with the fake blood on it on Nov. 1, 2015 while being charged with manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, DUI and more i

Portland police say Freeman was driving fast around 1:15 a.m. Nov. 1, 2015 when his 1999 Ford Explorer struck 27-year-old Nicholas Glenn Horsey of St. Helens. Witnesses said he was going fast when he hit Horsey and crashed into a power pole. Paramedics found the suspect still in his vehicle when they arrived.

The scary-looking man appeared drunk and showed signs of impairment as well as injuries to himself, but the bloody face turned out to be part of his Halloween costume.

Local media reported that the victim grew up just down the street from where he was killed. He was working overtime to save up to pay for his own place.
