Radio Clyde 1FM breakfast pre senter George Bowie had a brush with the law last Thursday and made the fatal mistake of thinking it was a late April Fool’s joke.
Stopped by the local police for having his fog lights on when they weren’t needed, Bowie was asked if he knew a Euan McMorrow, the breakfast show’s producer.
Sensing that McMorrow had set him up, Bowie thought that he ought to play along with the “gag”.
“I went into the whole routine – it’s a fair cop guv, cuff me then, you know the stuff… until I noticed they weren’t laughing,” says
Bowie. “Then I got a very stern lecture about taking the law ser-iously – or else.”
In fact, McMorrow had been pulled over ten minutes earlier for having a faulty tail light. Bowie was let off with a warning.
