BBNEWS just heard that a man dressed as Santa Claus in Texas was arrested by the Texas Department of Public Safety officers for writing with chalk on the grounds of the state Capitol building.
In the video, peace officers can be heard saying that the man, identified by theAmerican-Statesman as James Peterson, was the only person drawing on the sidewalk with chalk. But bystanders quickly responded that children and other adults were also drawing on the sidewalk and that they had video footage of it.
Peterson repeatedly asked why he was being arrested and was visibly distraught. According to the paper, DPS spokesman Tom Vinger said Peterson was charged with evading arrest.
