“Bohemian Rhapsody” Performance by Canadian Charged With Drunk Driving Goes Viral

Move over Wayne and Garth. Canadian Robert Wilkinson drunkenly serenaded his arresting police officers with the entirety of Queen's hit song “Bohemian Rhapsody” from the backseat of their squad car after being picked up for drunk driving. And now he’s famous—or infamous.

When they finally make it to the station and the officer comes around to let the home brewer out, the Freddie Mercury wannabe asks if he has to be handcuffed, assuring the policeman that, "Physical violence is the least of my priorities." Apparently neither was driving under the legal limit.

 Hopefully he was able to hold it together for processing. Once in the station, we can only assume he was given a Dixie cup and told, "If you're gonna spew, spew in this."
