Santa Claus is Arrested for DUI
Can you imagine if this was a Christmas song? Santa Claus is comin to town. Nope. He isn't. Because Santa Claus just got a DUI.
A 67-year-old man from Idaho, whose legal name is Santa Claus, was pulled over by cops last week for driving (his car, not sleigh) the wrong way on a local road. Inside Edition reports that Claus told police that he was unfamiliar with the area but that didn't help his story because they smelled alcohol coming from his car.
He admitted to having 3 or 4 beers and failed his sobriety tests that he was given. Claus was arrested and charged with a DUI.
But it's Santa Claus so the charges were dropped to a misdemeanor for reckless driving and he paid a $700 fine.
I guess now we know how Santa unwinds once the craziness of Christmas calms down. Can you blame him?
By the way, you can't be named Santa Claus without actually looking like him. You can see Claus' mug shot here. Definitely looks like the real deal, except a little more watered down... and scarier.
