Life Imitates "Bad Santa"


(CBS4) SALEM, NH Holiday shoppers got more than they bargained for at one New Hampshire mall.

Police say Richard Mullen dressed as Santa Claus, walked into the Mall at Rockingham Park on Sunday and dropped his pants.

Fortunately for the shoppers he was wearing sweatpants underneath the red suit. Police say if he hadn't been wearing those extra pants, he'd be facing indecent exposure charges. Instead he's charged with disorderly conduct.

52 year-old Mullen is from Malden and was not working as a mall Santa.

Police say he told them, he was just having some fun with the kids.

At least he didn't rob the store afterwards.
