Do not worry, kids!
This is not the really Santa Claus!
This is just a bad man that stole a Santa suit from a church in Brea. (Now the fact that he stole the suit from a church does spark another string of questions, but we're not going to get hung up there.) It seems that he stole the suit from one of Santa's helpers that was going to talk to kids in the area.
Well, because he strayed from his milk and cookie diet and got drunk.
Very, very drunk.
The Brea police actually found him sleeping in his car yesterday morning at 7.
They took him back to the station where he fell back into his hibernation, giving the cops the perfect opportunity for some quality social media action.
According to the New York Post, he was just charged with burglary.
Sources have not confirmed it, but it is believed that he will be placed at the top of the "naughty" list.
