Drunk student goes Christmas tree-hunting

Police in Ohio have arrested a Miami University student they say was drunkenly trying to chop down a 30-foot pine he wanted for a Christmas tree. Oxford police told the Hamilton JournalNews they were called early Sunday morning. They said the 21-year-old told them he planned to chop down the pine and then cut off the top part for his own Christmas tree. Police say a friend apparently took off with the ax.
