Police in the German town of Oldenburg have arrested a 32-year-old man.
Nothing unusual in that in itself but the man tried to avoid arrest by jumping from a balcony. Unfortunately, he landed on a wasps’ nest and the angry insects set about him, forcing him to run down the street. Rather like a scene from a cartoon the man was being pursued by wasps and the police who, in turn, also found themselves on the wrong end of the wasps’ stingers.
Eventually the man was forced to jump into an inflatable pool where he finally shook off the insects but not the police. With all those sharp objects about it probably wasn’t the smartest place to hide anyway.
For the police it probably brightened up an otherwise dull day.
