Here at The Salt Lake Tribune's crime blog, I tally the crimes characters commit and evaluate what potential sentence they could serve for them. Now that it's December, the Rap Sheet takes on one Christmas movie after another and after taking on Hans Gruber in "Die Hard" and Buddy in "Elf," we turn our attention to another contender for the naughty list: Arnold Schwarzenegger's desperate dad, Harold Langston, in "Jingle All the Way."
Langston's passion in hunting down a Turbo-Man action figure for his son on Christmas Eve is matched only by his wanton disregard for the law to get it. Rival father Myron Larabee, played by Sinbad, gives Langston a run for his money (and, you know, for a toy) in terms of the severity of his criminal behavior like threatening the police with an alleged bomb. But for the sake of this blog, we'll keep the focus on the dad who threatened to beat a disc jockey, burglarized his neighbor's home and abused a child.
