Bad day for Cuff 'Em since we're left with scumbags stealing Christmas gifts & Troy Smith getting arrested in Cleveland on Christmas Eve. Instead, we turn our attention to Canada where some 73-year-old mall Santa was so hammered that the usually relaxed Canadian cops actually had to arrest the bro. Imagine being a human actually living in Regina, Saskatchewan. It's 7+ hours from civilization (i.e. NHL hockey in Winnipeg). Getting drunk is just livin' life for Santa. JUMP!

There was a moment this year when searching for Cuff 'Ems that it became apparent that wearing sports clothing was a cottage industry within the bank robbery industry. There were hockey hats, SEC hoodies, MLB hats, NFL hats. Even a minor league baseball hat was worn in a bank robbery. We now consider ourselves the leader in this business and think 2012 could be the year when a sports blog busts a baseball cap bank robber. Still o-fer-2011 in '11 but that's in just 3-4 months. The boys - JUMP!

One chick went so far after Sunday's loss to the Chiefs that she's up for 12.5 years in jail for her actions after K.C. miraculously beat G.B., 19-14. This drunk broad is accused of choking her daughter. How bad did things get at some Appleton hotel? Mom is now on the hook for felony child abuse charges. Aaron Rodgers might have the division wrapped up, but mom wanted to destroy the Dolphins perfect record. JUMP!

There are days when cops roll up to a McDonald's to order a couple doubles with cheese and snag a large order of fries because it's going to be another boring day of acting like they're running radar. Then there are days in Florida when cops roll up to a McDonald's and encounter John Dickson. Cops get out of car and the first thing they notice is that Dickson smells like shit. Literally, like a giant pile of steaming shit. And then the cop earns his money. JUMP!
