Man Removes Wheel Clamp By Setting Fire To His Car
Having failed to remove the wheel clamp from his Metro with an axe (value of car: £120), Smithers set fire to a petrol-infused newspaper on the backseat and watched his car go up in flames.
He is said to have told police:
“My brain ended up being an idiot.”
Judge Paul Darlow sentenced Smithers’ brain to a high level community order.
