MS 5-year-old calls 911 to save Christmas from the Grinch

Five-year-old TyLon Pittman - with a little help from the police department in Byram, Mississippi - put the notorious Christmas-stealing Grinch behind bars.

TyLon Pittman saw a video clip of How the Grinch Stole Christmas and chose to call his local police department in Byram, Miss. on Saturday to report the green Dr. Seuss character's intentions. "He called to say the Grinch is going to steal his Christmas".

TeDera Dwayne Graves II wrote in a post on Facebook. "Every Christmas morning, my dad wears these Grinch trousers", Develle told the Clarion Ledger. The Grinch just shrugged his shoulders, but he did tell the junior crime fighter that, "You have saved Christmas for the people of Byram". So imagine her surprise when Officer Lauren Develle arrived on the family's doorstep later that evening to reassure the boy.

Christmas is a time for cheer and goodwill, and when one little boy thought the season could be in serious jeopardy, he took matters into his own hands.

MSNBC paid woman who said Chris Matthews harassed her
The network recently terminated Mark Halperin of Morning Joe and Matt Lauer of Today amid mounting sexual harassment allegations. Lauer has said he is "truly sorry" but said some of what was being said about him was untrue or mischaracterized.

The child - who hopes to become an officer himself when he grows up - received a Byram PD baseball cap and a Grinch toy to commemorate the important day. The video of the endearing interaction between the little boy and Officer Develle quickly went viral.

"TyLon's brother, who is home from the air force, made a decision to post a video of his little brother's call to the police on Facebook".

TyLon then allowed the Grinch to be released, WLBT reported. After the Grinch spent a little time in the cooler, Tylon decided it's time to let him go.
