‘Drunk Santa’ arrested after making ‘poor choices’


BREA, Calif. (KRON) – Bad Santa!

A man dubbed by Brea Police as “Drunk Santa Suit Criminal” is apparently on the Naughty List after cops found him in his car apparently under the influence of alcohol or drugs or both.

The Brea Police Department shared the bad Santa’s photo on social media with a message reading “Dear Santa, I’m sorry I stole your red suit. I was drunk and made some poor choices. I know it’s only October. And it’s hot. Too hot for this suit. But I was drunk. Poor choices. Sincerely, Drunk Santa Suit Criminal.”

Brea, which is located in Orange County, has remained in the steady 90’s for much of the week.

Police did not elaborate further on Santa’s punishment, which may or may not have included a lump of coal.
