It looks like Santa will have one fewer helper this Christmas, because a man who decided to dress up in an “Elf on the Shelf” costume, chug beers and pass out in his van in the Target parking lot with his “music blaring” was issued a DWI around 3:30 in the morning and will be unable to make the holiday festivities this year.

Twenty-three-year-old Brian Chellis was asleep behind the wheel in New Jersey when officers found him in his gray Toyota van with the engine running after receiving complaints about a suspicious vehicle. He woke up “confused about his whereabouts” and sitting next to an open beer can.

Needless to say, he failed his field sobriety tests and was taken to police headquarters for a breath test.

“Police issued him summonses for driving while intoxicated, careless driving and possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle.”

There’s always next year, Brian!
