Something Stupid

‘ROBBIE Williams has been party to some crimes against music, but now he has been used as an instrument with which to beat the villains.

When detective Dave Wishnowsky of Palmerston North, New Zealand, ran into Willie Mitford, a suspect in a theft, in a karaoke bar he struck up a conversation.

A couple of drinks later and Mitford agreed to admit to the theft if the detective sang well enough.

Unluckily for Mitford, Wishnowsky is a former musician and his rendition of Robbie William’s Better Man went down a storm.

“I had only sung two or three lines and he came over to me and said, ‘I’m guilty’,” said the cop.’
