The Weekly Vice) - Herbert Jones, a 62-year-old man who played Santa at a Massachusetts mall, has been jailed after he allegedly pinched the buttocks of an "elf" who was also employed at the mall.
According to police, Jones was working at the Hanover Mall as a "Photo Booth Santa" Saturday morning when he pinched the buttocks of an 18-year-old woman who also worked at the photo booth dressed as an elf.
The alleged pinching occurred when the woman walked past Jones during a photo session. Jones also allegedly told the woman "I wish you were a little older and I was a little younger."
Investigators say the woman contacted police after she went to a manager whose only suggestion was to talk the matter through with Jones.
Responding officers interviewed Jones who claimed the woman's buttocks made contact with his hand by accident as she walked by. He also told officers that the woman took his comment about his age out of context.
Jones was booked into jail and charged with assault and battery. He was released after posting $1,000 bail. He has also been ordered to refrain from wearing a Santa suit or entering the Hanover Mall.
