An hour into the city’s Santa Parade on Saturday, as Christmas-themed floats slowly travelled down Princess St., the voice of a man yelling at startled children that Santa Claus doesn’t exist was heard over the crowd.
Police arrested arrested a 24-year-old man around 6 p.m.
“It irritates me when things like this happen … let a kid be a kid,” said a Twitter user named Kim V.
Others called the man a Grinch and wondered if he would receive coal in his stocking for Christmas.
The man is facing public intoxication charges and breach of probation.
