Must Be Read To Be Believed: Woman Gropes Santa

No, really.

A 33-year-old woman was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault Saturday after allegedly groping a man playing Santa Claus at the Danbury Fair mall.

Sandrama Lamy, 33, of Danbury, is charged with fourth-degree sexual assault, according to Danbury Detective Lt. Thomas Michael.

Two messages seeking comment were left on Lamy's answering machine.

Details leading up to the alleged fondling are sketchy.

"I don't know what the deal was. It was just bizarre," the mall Santa told a reporter, referring all other questions about the incident to Cherry Hill Photo, the company that runs the Danbury Fair mall Santa photo setup.

I find this story particularly amusing for two reasons: I'm familiar with the mall where it happened and the fact that the guy playing Santa would mind getting his own Christmas goose. Considering the drudgery of spending all day playing Santa, I'd consider this to be a perk.

Before they built the Danbury Fair mall it was the site of the Danbury Fairgrounds, itself home of Danbury Racearena, where they raced odd 1930's-looking modifieds on a paved short-track. I attended many races there, as a kid.
