MESA COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – 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 Sheriff’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.
