A VILE prankster who dressed as Manchester Arena bombed Salman Abedi for Halloween has been arrested.
David Wootton, 40, posted photos online in an Arabic-style headdress and T-shirt with “I love Ariana Grande” penned across it.
His outfit was a reference to the devastating 2017 Manchester Arena attack by extremist Salman Abedi, which killed 22 and injured more than 1,000.
A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police today confirmed a man had been arrested following complaints about the costume.
A statement said: "We can confirm that a man has been arrested after the force received complaints about a man wearing an offensive costume on social media, depicting murderer, Salman Abedi who killed 22 people at Manchester Arena.
"The man was arrested on November 1 on suspicion of a number of offences including using a public communication network to send offensive messages.

"He remains in police custody for questioning at this time."
The photos posted on social media also included a black bag with “Boom” and “TNT” written on it.
His caption read: “Bet I get kicked out of the Halloween party.”
But the costume failed to impress his friends, with one telling The Sun last week: "It makes me cry to think that someone would think this is remotely funny."
