A 6 ft 4, 280 lb man dressed in a purple G-string and a red Santa hat failed a breathalyzer test outside of Grauman’s Chinese Theater Sunday night.
Rick Carroll, 53, of Long Beach, Calif., who also sported a blond wig, black leg warmers and red, lace camisole, allegedly registered just over the legal blood-alcohol limit of .08 percent when officers tested him after he pulled up in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater Sunday night, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
He was booked on a misdemeanor DUI charge and released on $5,000 bail. His car was impounded.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Chief Ken Garner said officers were “pretty sure this is not … Santa Claus.”
