Aaron Urbanski, 31, was arrested this past weekend for trespassing at a North Texas church after harassing children and telling them Santa isn’t real. Are you looking for drunk driving attorneys austin?
The St. Mark United Methodist Church is located in Cleburne, Texas and was hosting a breakfast with Santa event. Urbanksi was one of a few people demonstrating outside the church. Police were responding to a trespassing complaint when they came across Urbanski.
The three demonstrators were shouting “Santa’s Not Real!” through a bull horn across the street from the event. Urbanksi continued to make a scene and refused to leave so he was arrested and charged with criminal trespass. He was booked in to the Johnson County Law Enforcement Center.
The Mayor of Cleburne, Mayor Scott Cain made light of the situation by posting on Facebook “Don’t mess with Santa! While I understand folks right to protest, Cleburne loves Santa and those protestors who were naughty and broke the law when they trespassed were arrested promptly. Guess they wanted coal in their stockings to go with a court appearance.”
Urbanksi’s charge was a Class B criminal trespass, which is punishable by a jail term not to exceed 180 days and a fine not to exceed $2,000.
He posted bail the next day at $1,500.
Fearing continued protesting, city officials hired on additional security for the following weekend’s event, a Sunday night Christmas parade featuring Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Why Urbanski and the others felt it was imperative to protest Santa and harass children remains to be seen.
