Dashcam video posted on YouTube Wednesday captured a drunken man singing Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” in the back of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) cruiser.
The man begins by insisting that he had “done nothing wrong” and urging the officer to consider the “brotherhood of man of man on the planet Earth.”
Clearly that wasn’t working so the man removed his glasses and began serenading the officer with a animated rendition of Queen’s classic tune for six minutes, including a drum solo on the cruiser’s bullet-proof safety glass.
“Easy come, easy go, will you let me go? / Bismilah! No, we will not let you go!”
As his ride to the the station comes to an end, the officer encourages the passenger to calm down.
“I can’t!” he replies. “Because nothing really matters, Anyone can see, / Nothing really matters, / Nothing really matters, even the RCMP!”
Before removing him from the car, the officer suggests that he will have to use handcuffs if the man doesn’t behave.
“Physical violence is the least of my priorities,” the suspect calmly explains.

Compare that with Queen’s version of “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
UPDATE: The Smoking Gun reports that the Canadian crooner is Robert Wilkinson, 29, a home-brewer who posted on Facebook last month that he was “solving the worlds problems, one beer at a time.” Wilkinson is the person who originally posted the footage to YouTube, after receiving it during the process of discovery in his own case, in which he is currently acting as his own lawyer.
