Gotcha! Elf on the Shelf arrested for acts of mischief across Suffolk
He’s the Christmas character that keeps kids on their best behavior, but the Elf on the Shelf is now accused of sketchy behavior and has been arrested.
The Suffolk Sheriff's Office says Long Islanders have been posting pictures of the notorious elf creating havoc around the house - allegedly destroying kitchen countertops, making messes in bathrooms, and swinging from dining room chandeliers. These acts of mayhem have been occurring since the beginning of December.
The sheriff says he was taken into custody when the elf re-filed important paperwork at the sheriff's office in the wrong filing cabinets.
Elf was charged with attempting to distract the sheriff from his duties and silly mischief.
