CHALK IT UP
If you can’t find a blackboard, write it on the pavement. That’s how the saying goes, right?
In December 2012, James Peterson, aka Santa, wanted to spread some holiday cheer. But, instead of carol singing, he decided to give chalk to children to write their Christmas wishes on the pavement.
Police in Austin, Texas, arrested Peterson as he cried out, ‘I was being nice, what’s wrong with being nice?’ Shocked at his beloved Mr Claus being taken away in cuffs, one onlooker then scribbled Free Santa on the pavement.
Unsurprisingly, he was arrested, too!
