Merry Christmas: Santa Arrested in Austin for Chalking the Sidewalk!

What can I say; it’s a slow news day.  Merry Christmas everyone.

From the Huffington Post:

Officers with the Texas Department of Public Safety arrested a man dressed as Santa Claus in Austin Friday on charges of criminal mischief after writing with chalk on the grounds of the state Capitol building, the Austin American-Statesman reports.

“Today I saw the jolly red elf at the Capitol, cheerfully requesting that children write their wishes for a better world in chalk on the sidewalk. Santa said his favorite word was ‘Community.’ Various children wrote words like ‘Peace,’ ‘Friendship,’ and ‘Grace,’” Occupy Austin’s Lainie Duro, a witness to the arrest, said in the statement.

  2. Can’t have Santa walking the streets freely. He might be up to something sinister. Who knows what’s under that red coat? I’m surprised they didn’t call the swat team for protection. Santa is probably a threat to national security in this country.
