Ha! My hometown! It was only a matter of time before we turned up on the obscure Scottish blog I've been visiting almost daily these last few years. Nice.
At least it's only a dude in a Nixon mask and not another double or triple homicide. We've had a few of those make headlines lately.

I realy hope he was screaming "I am not a crook"

He was sitting in the crook of the tree...police have released audio recordings of the episode, but portions of the conversation have somehow been erased.
