Manchester United fan floods French villa in failed seduction
ANYONE know the name of the 31-year-old British Manchester United fan who broke into a home in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Nice, and attempted the fill the roof-top pool with water only to fail and flood the property?
The story goes that the romantic was attempting to woo an American woman. Before filling the pool – and the house – with water with outside showers and garden hoses, our hero chilled the champagne, lit candles, sprinkled rose petals round a bed, erected a black pirate flag, and pinned to the walls images of Winnie the Pooh and Manchester United.
The date never saw the disaster. She turned up three hours late and refused to accompany him back. When he returned to the scene, the home’s owner was there to greet him. The Manchester Romeo said he had slept in the car but realising he’d left some stuff at the owner’s now ruined home, had come to collect them.
Romeo is arrested and will appear before the Beak next year.
