TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Police say a belligerent man dressed in scuba gear caused a stir at a northern Michigan fast food restaurant.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle and MLive.com report the man, who had been drinking, showed up Tuesday morning at a downtown McDonald's. Workers called police, who found the 48-year-old man nearby.

Police say they don't know why the man was wearing scuba gear, but warned him that management didn't want him at the restaurant.

Regardless, Detective Sgt. James Bussell says that "as far as wearing scuba gear and having a couple of beers, that's legal."
