The holiday season is always filled with stories of charity and positivity. After all, that's what the holiday spirit and season is all about. What's most shocking is when someone who seems to be good-hearted commits a crime that's completely out of their character.

It seems that's what happened yesterday when the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety got a call and complaint of someone who was seen speeding north at dangerous speeds. With road conditions being what they are, there is no way the police could condone such careless and reckless behavior. Luckily Officer Kendall was diligent enough to track down, find and arrest the culprit:

Wiggle The Elf. Who knew that this seemingly kind elf could commit such a heinous and dangerous stunt?  He was later taken downtown for questioning and a mugshot:

After being questioned as to the reason behind his crime it was revealed he was on his way back to the North Pole to help Santa in time for Christmas. The reason for speeding was no excuse, however, there were no signs of substance abuse so the local police understood and released him with no further charges or bail needed.

Let this be a lesson that if you're caught recklessly driving in Kalamazoo unless you're on your way to the North Pole, you won't be getting off so easy. Stay safe out there this winter season and you won't end up in cuffs like Wiggle.
