SPOKANE - A man legally named Santa Claus was arrested after police in Idaho said they saw him driving on the wrong side of the street.

KREM-TV in Spokane, Washington, reports that 67-year-old Claus initially was booked on one count of DUI. He later pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving. He paid a $700 fine.

Claus, pictured in a jail photo with a big white beard, was arrested Thursday in Post Falls, near the Washington border. Claus told police he wasn't from around Post Falls and wasn't familiar with the streets, according to police documents.

Police noted he was cooperative throughout the arrest.
