I Don't Make Up the News, I only Read It!

Santa Cited for Marijuana Possession (The Associated Press) HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. -- A man who visited a middle school dressed as Santa Claus on Thursday left with a citation for misdemeanor marijuana possession. The 40-year-old Detroit man faces up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine after a small plastic bag of marijuana was found in the pocket of his street coat, which he left in a school restroom, Wayne County Sheriff's Department officials said. A deputy who works at the school found the marijuana while searching the coat for identification after a teacher found it in the bathroom. The man dressed as Santa approached the deputy a short time later and identified the coat. The man denied the pot was his. His wife, who was at the school to take pictures of Santa with the students, apparently did not know the marijuana was in her husband's coat, officials said. "She was not happy," Lt. Paul Jones said. "It's going to be a long ride back to the North Pole."
