If you live in Musselburgh, in East Lothian, and you were in Tesco at around 8pm last week, you’d be forgiven for wondering whether you needed to adjust your brain medication.
Customers were treated to the sight of Batman, Robin, David Hasselhoff and a Smurf apprehending a criminal in the store, after the man dressed as Robin had been attacked by a random nutjob on the street. The fancy dress heroes chased the attacker into Tesco where a spectacular scuffle ensued, and they managed to hold him until the police came.
East Lothian Police thanked the fancy dress crime fighters in a series of highly pleasing tweets, like this one:
‘Thank you to Batman, Robin, Robin's Dad, a Smurf, and the Hoff for helping us on Friday night. #Tesco, sorry about the toilet roll aisle.’
Police Scotland arrested a 21 year old man in connection with the incident, who pleaded guilty to the offence in court on Monday. Another triumph for the caped crusader. And Knight Rider. And er, some random Smurf.
