A man dressed as Santa shot two guys during an argument over a woman - this particular Old St. Nick's main squeeze. "Two men were arguing outside the store. They started shoving each other. As they were arguing, the guy in the Santa Claus outfit started shooting," a stunned witness said.

As Santa fled the scene, two off-duty cops cops chased him down the street as gunfire echoed through the air. It was a wild scene, to be sure. I am sure residents of that beleaguered city have seen a lot -- but this must be a first. "It was crazy down here," added the witness That's an understatement, if I've ever read one. One of the victims was shot in the chest and the other in the hand and luckily both are expected to fully recover.

As for bad Santa, he was arrested and it's very doubtful he will be set free in time to make those Christmas Eve deliveries.

What other crazy things have you heard of people doing in a Santa suit?
