Police in Beaufort, South Carolina, weren't in a festive mood when issuing a $232 fine to a local man for his Christmas decoration. In a display that would make Clark Griswold proud, Brandon Wooden decked out his car with Christmas lights on almost every inch of his vehicle, according to WJCL, an ABC affiliate in Savannah, Georgia.

In an era full of increasingly elaborate and impressive Christmas light displays on fixed buildings, Wooden took it a step further by making his light display mobile, as he has done for the past five years. It took him four hours to attach the lights using packing tape to the car and hook them up to a converter inside the vehicle to give them power.

“People usually follow me for a few miles, videotape me, Snapchat, stop me and tell me to pull over on the side of the road to take a picture," Wooden told WJCL.

He said it is a way for him to “spread the glow” of Christmas around Beaufort. Police felt differently, calling it an illegal safety hazard. Wooden received a fine and has been pulled over before about his lights.

“The first time they only pulled me over because they wanted to take pictures of the car,” Wooden said. “The second time it was a warning, and the third time was for improper lighting of a vehicle.”

Other Beaufort residents started a GoFundMe to help Wooden pay his debt. By Tuesday, it had already raised the $300 required to pay the fine and GoFundMe campaign fees, according to WJCL.
