Posted:

SPARTA, Wis. (AP) -- Santa Claus is in trouble with the law in one western Wisconsin city.

Police in Sparta say they cited a man dressed as Santa after witnesses told officers he stumbled out of a vehicle, approached several children playing in a yard, hugged them and demanded to know the whereabouts of his reindeer.

The man was cited for open intoxicants. The driver of the car in which he was riding was arrested for drunken driving.
