Naughty ‘Elf On The Shelf’ Arrested For DUI After Cops Find Him Passed Out

The holidays are a stressful time of year, especially for Santa’s little helpers. The pressure of making all of those toys must have driven this mischievous elf to drink his worries away.

Around 3:30 a.m. on Friday morning, Sgt. Pat Harden found Brian Chellis dressed as the popular holiday decoration “Elf on the Shelf.” He was in his Toyota van near the loading dock of a Target in New Jersey. However Chellis was not delivering toys. He was passed out. Drunk. With his car running. And the car’s headlights on. And music blaring. And an open can of beer in plain sight. Not a good look.

Definitely not the wisest move to flamboyantly bring attention to yourself when you’re completely hammered and in a running car.

The sergeant noticed that the 23-year-old was disoriented, didn’t know his own whereabouts and smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath.

The naughty elf failed a series of field sobriety tests as well as a breathalyzer test. He was charged with driving while intoxicated, careless driving and possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle.

Let’s all hope that this elf learned his lesson and doesn’t do something even worse.

“Elf on the Shelf,” NOOOOO!
