Just like back in the days of witches in Salem, frightened townsfolk in McLean were looking for a scapegoat--and they found one.

An Illinois police department has arrested Elsa, the snow queen from Disney's "Frozen," for allegedly bringing absurdly frigid cold temperatures to the area.

The McLean Police Department posted photos to their Facebook page that Elsa had been placed under arrest.

The department wrote, "ATTENTION: Due to the EXTREME COLD weather, all criminal activity and acts of stupidity and foolishness has been cancelled. Even Elsa has been placed under arrest with NO BOND until further notice. Thank you for your attention and understanding to this matter. Respectfully, the McLean Police Dept."
