Mugshot of the Day: Elf parties too hardy, arrested for OWI

Brandon Touchet, 34, of Lafayette, Louisiana, was arrested when cops caught him allegedly driving 60 mph in a 40 mph zone — dressed like an elf.

According to the police report, “Upon contact with the defendant there was a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath when he spoke, his eyes were bloodshot, and his speech was slurred, and he was swaying from side to side as he stood.” And did we mention he was dressed like and elf?

At the station Touchet blew a .124 blood alcohol and was arrested for OWI and excessive speeding. He is currently out on bond, probably hiding from Santa and the other elves.
