Georgia Man Arrested for Shooting at Mistletoe

It should be the season of good tidings and joy, but there also seem to be plenty of Christmas chaos to go around.

William E. Robinson, a Georgia man, was arrested for shooting mistletoe in shopping mall while picking up supplies for the holiday season, according to the Huffington Post.

That is plenty weird on its own, but Robinson’s reasoning makes the ordeal even stranger.

Robinson claimed to be a sort of Christmas Robin Hood who supplied his friends with mistletoe when they couldn’t get it himself.

“Every year I go somewhere to get some mistletoe to decorate the house,” Robinson told the station. “I get some for my friends that can’t get mistletoe. The best way to get it is with a shotgun.”

So, Robinson used a 12-gauge shotgun to send a bunch of mistletoe falling to the ground.

He was arrested for disorderly conduct.

In the U.K., it was a giant inflatable Santa Claus that found itself on the naughty list.

The massive balloon was on top of a pub in Hertfordshire, but the wind battered the decoration so much that it started shaking the entire building, according to the Huffington Post.

“The first time I heard it I got quite a shock it sounded like a wooden galleon rocking in a storm,” the landlord Andrew Marler said in the article. “It once created so much force that it actually ripped the mooring ropes out of the walls.”

The winds were so violent that Santa ended up ripping a hole through the roof of the pub — costing the pub about 3,000 pounds, or $4,700.
