U.S. police issue arrest warrant for Disney’s Queen Elsa from ‘Frozen’
The Harlan City Police Department in Harlan Kentucky had clearly had enough of freezing temperatures
As temperatures continue to drop to record lows in parts of the United States, police have identified a suspect in the form of Disney’s iconic Queen Elsa and issued an arrest warrant for the monarch of the fictional city of Arendelle.
The Harlan City Police Department in Harlan, Kentucky, who have clearly had enough of freezing temperatures, resorted to Facebook where they described the suspect.
“Suspect is a blonde female last seen wearing a long blue dress and is known to burst into song ‘Let it Go!’” the post read, in reference to a song in the 2013 film. The sing-along version of the song has been viewed more than 130 million times on YouTube.
The police department’s display of sense of humor has been met with an avalanche of social media reactions; as of Saturday, the post has been shared more than 15,000 times.
“As you can see by the weather she is very dangerous. Do not attempt to apprehend her alone,” police jokingly warned.
Of the hundreds of comments posted under the statement, one commentator took the joke a little further posting this:
TO: Harlan City Police Department.
FROM: Snow Miser, Santa's Workshop, North Pole.
RE: Arrest warrant, Queen Elsa
To the Chief and members of the Harlan City Police Department.
I regret to inform you that your alleged warrant for the arrest of Queen Elsa of Arendelle will not be able to be served, as she has asked for and been granted asylum here at the north pole - which as I am sure that you are aware is well outside your enforcement jurisdiction (Even if she hadn't been granted asylum).
If there is any other item of business we can assist you with - colder weather, additional SNOW for the kiddies to play in, etc - we will be more than happy to obliged.
The post is clearly inspired by the film’s plot where at the beginning of the movie, a disgruntled Queen Elsa accidentally freezes the Kingdom of Arendelle with her superpowers, which she has a hard time reconciling with throughout the film.
The film then follows Princess Anna, Elsa’s sister, who tries to help her sister reinstate summer.
“Frozen” has solidified itself a spot in popular culture and is the highest-grossing Walt Disney Pictures release.
