MEXICO CITY — Handcuffed and with a knife still sticking out of his overalls, the Chucky doll leans against the wall as police hold him by his bright orange hair to take his mugshot.
In a bizarre twist, Chucky and his owner were locked up in a town in northern Mexico earlier this week.
The puppeteer, named only Carlos “N” by Mexican standards, is said to have used the “demon puppet” to scare people and demand money, local media reported.
Both were charged with disturbing the peace and endangering the integrity of others.
An officer from the police station in Monclova, Coahuila state, was seen smiling as she held up the long knife taken from Chucky.
Mexican media reported that the officer who handcuffed Chucky was later reprimanded for not taking her job seriously.
Carlos “N” was later released, local media reported, although the whereabouts of the Chucky doll remain unknown.
