USTRZYKACH DOLNYCH, Poland, Dec. 23 (UPI) —
Police in Poland said a Santa and his helper could face drunken driving charges after they were thrown from their sleigh on a busy street.
Witnesses said the 51-year-old Santa and his 31-year-old female helper were both visibly drunk as they rode a horse-drawn sleigh down a busy road in Ustrzykach Dolnych and they were thrown from the vehicle when a car horn spooked their horse, the British newspaper the Mirror reported Monday.
Police said the two people, whose names were not released, were taken to a local hospital with concussions.
Police spokesman Dorota Glazowska said they could be facing charges.
