Naughty kids won't get coal this year, they get mugshots

PEARLAND, Texas (KTRK) -- Naughty kids won't get coal this year, instead they'll get mugshots with Santa.

The Pearland Police Department's youth training program is hosting a "Mugshots with Santa" event on Saturday, Dec. 14.

Families will be able to choose between a variety of booking signs to include on their mugshot, such as "Texting addict," "Aggie fan" and "Refuses to nap."

The youth program provides training for high school students and young adults that are interested in law enforcement careers.

The photos will be taken on cell phones, and groups of four are only allowed to take one photo.
