Santa Claus does more than just bring good little boys and girls presents and eat cookies: he also fights crime.

At least this motorcycle-riding Santa in Paris does.

Santa witnessed the driver knock over a pedestrian and then speed off, so he decided to give chase and actually caught up with him.

Of course, authorities do not encourage anyone to "chase down" anyone else - a call to 911 with details should be your first move. If you can follow the vehicle safely (and legally, of course), do so until the police arrive but at no time should you put yourself in danger.

I'm not certain what happened to the perp, but maybe he was greeted with "Joyeux Noël. Bienvenue en prison".
