You don't ever want to take a mugshot, but in the event that you do, you definitely don't want to be dressed like Will Ferrell's Buddy the Elf from Elf.

Yesterday morning, Brandon Touchet was arrested in Louisiana for driving under the influence and at obnoxious speeds, all while clad in a green elf costume. Authorities said that the 34-year-old reeked of liquor, struggled to walk and slurred his words during questioning. He blew a .124 on a Breathalyzer shortly after confessing to drinking and speeding, and was ultimately taken to Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office jail. 

Though he was released after posting $1,500 bond, he'll never live down the same of being arrested wearing a green elf costume. Who would?
