A man arrested for being drunk and disorderly made his plea to police with an impromptu version of Queen’s hit Bohemian Rhapsody.
The rendition, which is surprisingly in tune, was caught on police CCTV and uploaded to YouTube, where it has hit almost a million views in two days.
The arrested Robert Williams, who would probably need to change his name if he plans to lay off the sauce and make it as a singing sensation – slurs as he pleads his innocence. He says: “I have done nothing wrong and even the situation where you grabbed me has nothing to do with having been sort of intoxicated as you proclaim.
“What it has to do with is the brotherhood of mankind on the planet Earth.””
Does that make sense? You’re not making much of case for yourself here Williams… But then, upon being ignored by the arresting officers, the 29-year-old launches into the notorious opening line: “Is this the real life? Or is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.”
The drunk was arrested in Edson in Alberta, Canada on November 27th last year, and even the police seemed entertained by the performance as they allow him to finish before taking him in to the station.
Drunk and disorderly he may be. But Williams, whose connection to the injustice portrayed in the song leads him to remove his glasses and hold his head in anguish, manages to recite the whole song in just under the 5 minutes 55 seconds of the original.
His response upon being asked by the officers whether he intends to “get physical,” is: “Physical violence is the least of my priorities.”
Maybe more people should take a leaf out of Robert’s book. Don’t fight when you’re drunk, just sing Queen. We bet his charge will be cut for taking the musical route.
