LIMERICK, Maine (AP) - Deputies paid a visit to a southern Maine home after its owner’s raunchy anti-terrorist Christmas light display was misconstrued as support for the Islamic State group.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1P1RlIa ) the homeowner, who wasn’t identified, used lights to spell out the word “ISIS” on a board below the deck of the home in Limerick.

York County Sheriff William King says that was all a concerned resident saw when he notified the office of a potential “ISIS sympathizer.”

What he didn’t see, however, was the illuminated plastic Santa Claus placed atop the deck that appeared to be urinating on the word ISIS via a strand of white lights.

King says no laws were broken and the homeowner will rearrange the lights to “clear up any doubts about his message.”
