isn't always down to how you react to being questioned though? I dare bet the author of the article acted like a complete nob when he was questioned, and talked himself into nearly getting arrested.
Was on the train once to Boro, and saw this sackless old harridan talk herself into getting arrested and chucked into a police wagon at Thornaby. She didnt have the means to pay for her ticket (debit card wasnt working), and got on at Hartlepool - where she was supposed to get a ticket before boarding, as it's got a ticket office.
Long story short, she wouldn't accept that she should have got a ticket before getting on - and the conductor kept trying to take her details, but the silly cow went on and on. In the end he rang through to have the polis pick her up at Thornanby.
Funny as fuck though, she was fucking livid when the train pulled into Thornaby.
