A man has been arrested in Canada for "outing" Santa Claus to children along a Christmas parade route.

The 24-year-old man, whose hair was gelled to look like horns coming out of his head, had been walking the parade route in Kingston, Ontario, and telling kids that Santa doesn't exist, The Huffington Post reported.

He was charged with causing a disturbance, public intoxication and a probation violation.

The man spent the night in jail while he sobered up and posted bail the next morning.

"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," Kingston police Const. Steve Koopman told the Toronto Star.
