Police Chief Mike Koval in Madison, Wisconsin arrested WISC-TV Meteorologist Dave Caufield during a live newscast for "stealing spring," according to the station .

Koval and Capt. Cory Nelson 'arrested' Caufield for charges of spreading false hope for warmer weather and not following through on promises.

"You are so infatuated with breaking records that we believe you are instigating this prolonged pain and misery," Koval said.

Caufield said he's taking the fall for Mother Nature's crimes.

Although we're all upset about the weather, the only one to blame here is Mother Nature herself. The Madison Police Department will not actually be pressing charges against Dave Caufield.
