Top Gear’s Stig gets arrested in Ireland...sort of
As far as matters that aren’t related to cars, when it comes to Top Gear’s Stig, it’s best to take anything he does with a grain of salt.
According to Top Gear, the popular British car show where the Stig is one of the mainstays, the white-jumpsuit-and-helmet-wearing mystery man was ‘SENSATIOALLY ARRESTED by a FRIENDLY POLICEMAN following an ALLEGED INCIDENT of some kind’.
Yes, those were the exact words from Top Gear. It doesn’t really strike you as completely sincere, does it?
According to the story, the Garda – the Irish police, if you’re keeping track – pulled over the Stig for what appeared to be a minor traffic infraction. While no details were unveiled at the time of the ‘arrest’, one eye-witness said: I didn’t see what happened exactly but it was probably really bad. Maybe he punched a swan or tried to push one of the Hairy Bikers into the river. Again."
Again, we find nothing about this story that sounds remotely like what would happen if in fact the Stig gets caught driving with his pants down. Top Gear’s been known for laying out some wicked pranks in the past, so don’t be surprised if this is just one of them.
