TEMPLE, Texas — The killjoy of the holiday season, also known as the Grinch, was arrested after trying to ruin the 29th annual TriCounty Toy Run, Temple police said.

The Temple police department said on its Twitter page the Grinch "decided to stir some trouble."

Despite the wet blanket of the Christmas season's best efforts, the toy drive for Central Texas children saw record turnout with move than 900 people in attendance last weekend.

The Grinch had run-ins with law enforcement already this year with an arrest on Dec. 3 by Hewitt police and an arrest warrant issued by the presiding judge of Rosebud last month.
