I've always considered myself pretty good at hide and seek, but this drunk driver trying to get away from the cops may be the actual best. After crashing a Mini Cooper, a man in the North Yorkshire area of England ran into a nativity scene to escape the police. He ended up hiding between hay bales and baby Jesus himself.
The Telegraph reports that the accident happened about 200 meters from the nativity scene, which was housed by a shed. North Yorkshire Police reported that they had located the suspect and promptly arrested him, and they posted the photo above on Twitter. Obviously it is a rather humorous attempt to get away with some pretty bad behavior, and his actions quickly inspired a series of jokes and commentary on social media. Below are some of the best Twitter reactions to this absurd news:
@NYorksRPG obviously not one of the wise men— Bill Simpson (@fc963ec364de471) December 12, 2015
@NYorksRPG ---shame there was "No room at the inn", could have been a different story!— Malcolm Kettlewell (@mallykay17) December 12, 2015
Drunk driving is no joke, but this tomfoolery is next level.
