The Drunken Music Video Everyone Is Talking About Today

If you’re going to get arrested for being drunk and disorderly, you might as well make the best of it, right? So why not break out in a rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody” from the back of the cruiser?  And the dude is apparently Canadian, too, since this video was taken in an RCMP vehicle.

Good voice, dude.

    On the one hand, the numbers/time/date makes it seem legit. On the otherhand, what would prompt the RCMP to release stuff like this?

    @Travis:
    The guy who was charged in this case is defending himself in court. So the RCMP handed over his disclosure package so he could prepare his case, and that package includes this video. And when he got the video, he posted it on youtube. So the RCMP didn't so much release it to the public as they released it to the defendant, who released it to the public.
