Florida Grinch steals speeder’s Christmas

| 12/6/2007

It’s the holiday season and in Orlando, FL, that means sheriff’s officers break out their costumes.

WKMG-TV reported that an officer dressed as the Grinch, complete with green face paint, has been ticketing speeders at the rate of one per minute on the city’s Orange Blossom Trail.

In the past, officers in the area have dressed up as elves at Christmas and Uncle Sam around the Fourth of July.

In 2006, the Grinch handed out about 200 tickets in just a few hours.
