Speaking of wasted Santas, another inebriated Father Christmas was taken away by Sparta cops in December 2009. According to reports, the bearded bringer of gifts stumbled out of his car and into a yard where a crew of a little kids was playing. While he didn't frighten them all with a G-string, he did proceed to start hugging them and demanding to know where his reindeer were, prompting one's mom watching from inside to call the police.

Per 9-year-old witness Katie, "I knew it wasn't the real Santa because Santa doesn't drink alcohol."

We don't know if we'd go that far, kiddo.
