Aaron Thackeray Evil?
There's always a lot of fake blood -- and spare body parts -- at the Denver Zombie Crawl, which runs down the 16th Street Mall every year. But the ninth annual incarnation of the event, which took place on October 18, ended with some real blood and plenty of pepper spray, according to news reports about a couple of fights that took place near Cleveland Place late in the evening.
