EVER wondered why Santa’s so jolly? It’s because he’s off his tits on crack.
Corby police arrested a Santa who had been handing out presents to children all day on suspicion he was carrying drugs.
The amateur Father Christmas was called in by the owner of the Rockingham Arms for the annual Christmas gathering after its normal Santa was double booked.
However, after shedding his disguise and returning to the bar, police officers and sniffer dogs arrived as part of a week of action on alcohol, arresting him on suspicion of being inebriated and having drugs.
“Unfortunately, Santa got a bit mouthy when the police came in. There were a couple of hundred people in the bar and they were all shouting ‘don’t take our Santa!’ said Jimmy Brown, landlord of the pub.
