Albany -- An Albany man was arrested for wearing a ski mask in his own yard.

Monday a neighbor saw 40-year old Troy Morgan moving lawn equipment to a house a few doors down and called police.

 Albany Police went to the house on Doncaster Drive, confronted Morgan,  and told him to remove the ski mask. Morgan yelled at the officer that he wasn't going to jail and the officer could shoot him.

Turns out Morgan was moving his own lawn equipment so he could cut a neighbor's grass. He was apparently wearing the mask because of allergies.

 Police arrested him and charged him with wearing a mask to conceal his identity and obstructing a law enforcement officer.
