Evil Elmo Charged

A homeless guy who has been making headlines as Evil Elmo before on Time Square when he shouted anti-semitic rants. Now Dan Sandler aka Adam Sandler has been charged for attempting to extort $2 million from Girl Scouts of the USA and stalking and harassing a Girl Scouts employee according to an announcement of the District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance.

“The defendant is accused of trying to use his widely publicized criminal history to extort millions of dollars from the Girl Scouts, a nonprofit organization that has worked to improve the lives of girls and young women for more than a century,” said District Attorney Vance. “The charges against the defendant also detail his harassment of a Girl Scout employee with dozens of threatening and bizarre emails, photos, and phone messages.”

The New York Daily News has some more rants from Evil Elmo apparently made on the flight from San Francisco to New York for the court appointment.

There are more street performers wearing an Elmo costume in New York. Not all are "evil."
