A 28-year-old man is in custody after he attempted to rob a Glasgow betting shop (side note: In the UK, you can just walk in off the streets and bet on sports all over the place) with a cucumber stuffed in a sock. EVERYBODY FREEZE, THIS IS A ROBBERY:
A female worker refused to hand over money before an off-duty detective stepped in and pinned the 28-year-old to the ground. Rough later told police who arrested him: “It was a f****** cucumber. Am I getting the jail for this?”
The man is facing three years in prison and a lifetime of ridicule.
