What would a Yule be without stories of everyone’s favorite jolly old Christmas mascot suffering an onslaught of verbal, physical and sexual assaults? Well, a joyous time of peace and love to all mankind, really. But since that’s not the case, TheFeed presents this UPDATE to our very special holiday report: Santas Under Attack ’07 Live!
Cold-cocked Kringle – “They thought I'd spilled my hot chocolate, but then they realized it was blood.”
An off-duty firefighter dressed as Santa was knocked unconscious after being hit in the face with an unidentified projectile in Spokane, WA on Saturday.
While participating in Spokane’s “Santa Run,” a warm and wholesome event sponsored by the firefighters union, Kevin Smith (not that Kevin Smith, though it could be argued he resembles a young St. Nick) was struck by the object and suffered a broken nose, two black eyes, and a concussion. “One second I was up there waving to people, and the next minute I wasn't," said Smith, an eight-year veteran of firefighting.
Assault charges have been filed, but no witnesses have thus far come forth.
