Lafeyette, La. (KRMG) -- In this case Santa’s little helper was a 34-year old named Brandon Touchet.

While he’s probably upset for being caught driving under the influence, he has to really be mad about what he was wearing.

When cops arrested Touchet near Lafayette, Louisiana they were surprised to find him dressed as an elf.

Not just any elf, but the Will Ferrell character Buddy, from the movie “Elf.”

The Smoking Gun obtained the police report from the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office.

It shows Touchet “admitted to speeding and consuming alcoholic beverages after he was Mirandized.”

There must have been a little something extra in the eggnog. When officers checked his blood alcohol content it was .124 when the legal limit is .08.

Cops also say he was “swaying from side to side as he stood.”

Touchet posted 1,500 bond and was released. No word on if he drove away, or left in a sleigh.
