A 5-year-old Mississippi boy called police to prevent the Grinch from stealing Christmas -- and police made an arrest.
TyLon Pittman saw a video clip of How the Grinch Stole Christmas and decided to call his local police department in Byram, Miss. on Saturday to report the green Dr. Seuss character's intentions. A 911 dispatcher eventually got TyLon's father on the phone, who scolded his son.
"Boy, you better stop watching so many cartoons!" he said as the dispatcher laughed.
But instead of blowing off the call as a prank, police showed up to TyLon's house to let him know that his Christmas won't be stolen.
