A group of people on a ghost tour in Gettysburg were arrested after police mistook them for burglers.

The group had been touring an allegedly haunted civil war era building to which the first Union general had been taken when he was injured during the Battle of Gettysburg. Now a Victorian-style photography studio, the building is said to play host to paranormal activity and is a popular destination for ghost tours in the area.

Not everything went according to plan on a recent tour during Thanksgiving however when two ghost hunters and a tour guide ended up being arrested at gunpoint by a police officer who believed that they had broken in to the building. The patrolman had been passing by when he noticed flashlights through the windows and had automatically assumed that the place was being robbed.

The matter was eventually sorted out after police contacted Gettysburg Ghost Tours to confirm that the group had permission to be there. All three individuals were later released without charge.

An investigator watching a building in the early hours managed to film something unusual in the sky.

Joe Rodriguez had been on stakeout in Los Angeles on December 3rd when, upon casting his eyes briefly skyward, he caught sight of a strange brightly lit object hovering high above the trees and power lines.

In an interview with YouTube channel "ThirdPhaseOfTheMoon", Rodriguez stated that he did not believe that the object was a balloon, airplane or other conventional aircraft.

The paranormal themed tyre commercial is so terrifying that it comes with its own health warning.

Eager to make sure that their latest advertising campaign stands out from the crowd, one Japanese tyre company has created a television advertisement so terrifying that many of those who watch it may need to sit down for a moment to collect their nerves.

The Autoway Tyres ad features a dashboard camera view of a vehicle driving along a snow-covered road in the dark. The unsuspecting occupants soon discover that they are not alone however as the ghostly figure of a girl appears on the road ahead and then proceeds to loom towards the camera in a jump scare sure to frighten the living daylights out of anyone who is watching.

So terrifying is the advert in fact that it comes with its own health warning to those with a heart condition or nervous disposition. Suffice to say, if you have a particular aversion to jump scares it might be a good idea to pass on this one.

The advert can be viewed below, but please, don't have nightmares.
