The Grinch is alive and well this holiday season.

A Canadian man was arrested after he told several kids that Santa Claus was not real.

He was described to have styled his hair with gel to look like two protruding devil horns.

“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,” Constable Steve Koopman told local reporters.

The Santa whistle blower was apprehended by police and charged with disturbing the peace while drunk and violating his probation.
