Drunken elf arrested

A man dressed as a elf found himself behind bars in Southwest Louisiana.

Cops say they stopped Brandon Touchet for speeding and found he was drunk too.

"As the result of traffic stop the individual exited the vehicle and showed signs of being impaired and intoxicated and blew over the legal limit," Lafayette Police Corporal Paul Mouton said.

He says Touchet had apparently been at a Christmas party.

"He was in a green... elf jacket with a white fur around where his neck was," Mouton said.

It appears to be a "Buddy the Elf" costume from the movie starring Will Ferrel.

Mouton says Touchet had bloodshot eyes and had a blood alcohol level of .124.
