A pensioner is being sought by police after he was spotted driving naked around a bowling green in Perth on a motorised scooter.The sheer speed of his getaway obviously dissuaded any pursuers. Apparently several officers were dispatched to the bowling club to investigate but the fugitive had gone - leaving tyre tracks as the only clue to his identity.
The man, thought to be in his 70s, was seen in South Inch by a passer-by at about 1000 GMT on Thursday.
The witness was concerned he would be seen by children at a nearby park.
A Tayside Police spokesman said the man put his clothes back on and drove off. The man's scooter is believed to have a top speed of 3 mph.
According to Polis pursuit rules we are not supposed to pursue folk on bikes/scooters that are not wearing helmets (though his helmet may well have been on display) in case they fall off (the rider that is) and injure themselves. I suppose that would include a foot pursuit too given the speed.
When caught I'm sure he will be ASBO'd!
As ickle bruvver noted, a brave old man in this weather!
