Last February, police in Mainz, Germany responded to an apartment building after cries were heard from within one unit. When they arrived, they found two men, the 58-year-old tenant and a 61-year-old visitor, “hopelessly locked up” with a mannequin dressed as a knight and a large remote-controlled car. The men were too drunk to explain how they had become entangled, and one officer remarked that “the whole thing would have remained a funny episode” if the younger man had not become “more than impolite.”
He now faces a charge of insulting officers.
I’m still waiting for a complete explanation.
