CRAP ARREST OF THE WEEK
For spreading evil spirits...
Brighton Cops went in for some ghoulish behaviour when they pounced unannounced on a Zombie Drag Queen, lurching peaceably home on Halloween weekend.
It was the night of a big city centre wide arts event called White Night, with street performances, installations, urban fetes and much hallow’een themed revelry in all directions.
And our undead hero/heroine (heroit?)’s crime? The Queen of the Dead was spotted by two boys in blue giving a friend a sip of a drink, which in the eyes of the uniformed Van Helsings added up to ‘drunk’n’disorderly’ at the hellish time of 12.30am.
In a surreal scene which fascinated onlookers thought was all part of the entertainment, the zombie was unceremoniously arm-twisted and dragged off; thankfully not to be decapitated - but nonetheless receive a 12-hour ban from the Old Steine area.
But no doubt she will rise again.
