Vandals decapitated a snowman outside a South Milwaukee home, and perhaps the holiday spirit motivated them to make amends.
Tony Harper's 4-foot lighted snowman cutout was up for just two days when he heard a commotion Dec. 1.
He tells WISN-TV he looked out to spot a woman walking away with top of his snowman, which she'd ripped in half.
Police say the vandals were a husband, wife and another woman, all in their mid-30s. They beheaded the snowman after drinking at a neighborhood bar. Police cited them for property damage.
The case took a turn the next morning when the vandals showed up at Harper's door. He says they apologized and gave him $50 for a new snowman.
He says people make mistakes, and he wishes them a good holiday.
