Santa Accosted and Arrested by Cops in Georgia

A Santa was placed under arrested and accosted by the state's goon squad at a Circuit City store. What is the state's vile charge against him? He was "disturbing the peace."

AUGUSTA, Ga. - 'Let Santa go! Let Santa go,' That's what Circuit City shoppers at the Augusta Exchange were chanting when a local pastor, dressed as Santa Clause, was asked to leave.

Circuit City employees told their District manager, Kim Cavros, that customers in line complained to them, saying Santa was 'disturbing the peace.'

'There was a Santa Clause preaching the gospel out on the corner of the building,' said Cavros.

Wayne Adams was one of the shoppers who saw the guy dressed as Santa,'He never promoted his church...never promoted anything just the nice Christmas season.'

Whether Santa was preaching the gospel or promoting the Christmas season, Richmond County deputies were called and Santa was escorted off Circuit City property.

(Thanks to RRND for its coverage of this.)

On a side note, it was a shopper, not Circuit City, who called the state's goons.
