After our snowstorm froze over the area last weekend, South Carolina police released bodycam footage showing the arrest of a well-known ice queen Elsa.
The “rare” footage showed Elsa from Disney’s Frozen franchise reveling in the freshly fallen snow that blanketed the scenery around her. Then, she spotted the police — and ran.
Despite the poor choice of words, Elsa soon gave up the chase.
“Come on guys, just let it go,” she could be heard saying.
No one was “injured or severely frozen,” the Pickens Police Department said on its Facebook page. “Her accomplice, the abominable snowman, is still at large. He has unleashed more snow and ice. Help us find him.”
The department used the short parody to include a reminder for motorists to be safe on the roads while driving.
The annual Elsa sighting marked only one of several common sights across North America that give winter its fantastical charm.
