In what might take the prize for the creepiest arrest on this list, a phony mall Santa by the name of Richard Mullen was spotted roaming around the Rockingham Park shopping center and dropping his trousers in front of kids and onlookers in December 2005. Thankfully the guy was sporting some red sweatpants beneath his holiday garb, but his efforts to pass the stunt off as a Christmas prank fell flat on skeeved-out police.

In a last attempt to spread the holiday terror cheer, Mullen dropped his pants for an incoming couple as he was escorted from the premises.

We knew there was a reason we never trusted mall Santas.
