Lafayette Man Gets DWI While Dressed as Buddy the Elf

If you’re going to get pulled over and charged with a DWI, being dressed as Buddy the Elf certainly doesn’t help your case in any way.  That’s what happened to one Lafayette man this week.  His name is Brandon Touchet, 34, and it’s gonna be tough to live this one down.

Now, it’s funny and all, but Touchet blew a 0.124 on the Breathalyzer after getting pulled over on Kaliste Saloom Road at 3 a.m. on Sunday, according to court documents.  Touchet was doing 60 in a 40 — decided NOT elf-like.  The story has gone nationwide now, already having popped up on the Smoking Gun.

He bonded out on a $1,500 bond, quite possibly to get back to the North Pole to finish making toys for next week.
