A real-life Grinch was arrested after telling children at a parade that Santa isn’t real.

The unidentified 24-year-old man, who had his hair gelled to look as though devil horns were protruding from his head, was arrested by police in the Canadian town of Kingston during the annual Santa Claus parade..

According to authorities the Grinch will faces criminal charges of causing a disturbance by being drunk and breach of probation.

“It was pretty despicable that someone, during this time of the year, would tell kids Santa isn’t real – which of course we would argue,” Const. Steve Koopman told the Toronto Star.
