This is not the first time that someone has made headlines for getting a DUI while dressed in a costume. In 2014, a man dressed up as an Elf on the Shelf was found asleep in his van in New Jersey. According to SBS, the 23-year-old man was discovered passed out behind the wheel of a van with its engine running, lights on, and musicblaring. He was in a red shirt, red pants, and a white ruffled collar.
Lieutenant James Macintosh told SBS that the New Jersey native seemed confused about where he was and had an open can of beer in the car as he woke up. The man was issued a summons and released to a family member.
