A man dressed like 'Buddy the Elf' from the popular Christmas movie 'Elf' was arrested on a drunk-driving charge in Lafayette, Louisiana Sunday.

KATC in Louisiana reported 34-year-old Brandon Touchet was pulled over around 2:35 a.m. after driving 60 mph in a 40 mph zone.

When Touchet exited his vehicle, his eyes were bloodshot, his speech was slurred and he could not keep his balance, said police.

Officers administered a breathalyzer test, during which Touchet blew a .124, police said.

Touchet was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and excessive speeding. He was later released on $1500 bond.
