A near-sighted policeman currently serving in Sheffield was the talk of his force, when he arrested a saxophone, mistaking the instrument for a crook.
An onlooker described the moment when the policeman pulled up outside the music shop and grabbed the saxophone which was being displayed in the window:
"I was getting money from a cash point machine when a police car pulled up and then a PC got out and rushed into the shop and dived onto this saxophone, he then pulled the saxophone out into the street and began reading it his rights."
The policeman who declined to be interviewed realized his mistake when a passer-by explained to the PC that it was a musical instrument.
Following rumours, detectives combed the area for several hours looking for a punchline, but none could be found.
