One for the 'naughty list'
According to reports, this elf wasn't part of the mall's Santa operation -- thankfully:
Southlake Mall was evacuated Wednesday night after a man dressed as an elf allegedly told the mall Santa that he was carrying dynamite.
But when the GBI bomb squad examined three packages left near Santa, the incident was declared a ho-ho-hoax.
The bad elf, William C. Caldwell III, was being held without bond Thursday in the Clayton County Jail, charged with having hoax devices, making terroristic threats, false imprisonment, simple assault, reckless conduct, disorderly conduct and false public alarm.
