Top 3 Santa Claus DUI Arrest Videos

Oh Santa, it looks like you've been naughty from the Santa Claus DUI videos we've seen on the Internet.

Are Kris Kringle's cheeks red from the cold or the booze? Is that "Ho Ho Ho" because he's so jolly or because he's drunk? Does he know that his sleigh is a vehicle and he can't drive it while he's intoxicated?

It doesn't matter who you are, if you have too many drinks and get behind the wheel you're going to get busted for a DUI. But if you're Santa, someone might make a video of it and then everyone will know.

Here are three Santa-related DUI arrest videos and the lessons we can learn from them:

Drunken Santa tossing presents out the window.

Based on the accents in the video, when Santa goes to England he trades in the sleigh for a midsized SUV. To get the presents to the little girls and boys, he tosses them out the window while he drives. But Santa was certainly drunk; if he'd been in the United States, he would have also gotten charged with a DUI.

Drunken Santa on a bike.

At this point Santa is trying to get around via bike. But unfortunately, a bike is still a vehicle and he is clearly intoxicated. The bike ride doesn't go well when he almost immediately flips off the bike, right in front a police officer. It's a not going to be a good night.

Drunken Santa's helper.

It's not just Santa that indulged in a bit too much eggnog. Not only did this elf have a few too many drinks at the Christmas party, he's also caught driving without a license. That's not such a problem but it certainly doesn't make things easier. When he failed the sobriety tests, we knew he was going to need a lawyer if he wants to work in Santa's toyshop again.

Here's hoping your holiday doesn't end in a DUI arrest, as seen in the videos above. Remind yourself and your friends not to drink and drive, especially on your way back from a holiday party. And especially if you're dressed in a Santa suit.
