London, England-- Rock star Robert Plant was taken into custody yesterday by Scotland Yard in a case of mistaken identity. The legendary singer of Led Zeppelin was mistaken for Rebekah Brooks, the central figure in the Rupert Murdoch hacking scandal. He was released after two-hours in custody, and graciously accepted an apology from police for the error.
The Scotland Yard agents were confused by Robert Plant's long, curly locks. His shoulder length hair--dyed red--was an exact match for the beleaguered Rebekah Brooks. Even his tired, wrinkled face with sagging jowls looked similar to Ms. Brooks.
The easy-going Robert Plant was detained for only two hours, and released after his fingerprints failed to match Rebekah Brooks.
The aging rock star had nothing but kind words for officers, and serenaded them a bit about Rebekah Brooks before driving away.
