You’ll remember that last week the Albox Mayor lodged a criminal complaint against a group of blackmailers, extortioners and general mafiosos in his village, as he claims the local shopkeepers are too scared to speak up.
Anyway, one of the two main suspects, a gypsy from the Los Pertolos clan, known as RRT in the press, was arrested over the weekend.

They haven’t been able to get this lowlife on charges of:
homicide, murder, vandalism, hooligalism, public health violations, threatening behaviour, extortion, racketeering or blackmail ;

When stopped, he was “aggressive” and tried to take a swing at the copper, but drunkenly missed and fell over.
The bloke is a notorious drunk, who on his last rampage through the village used a large knife to slash the wheels of 15 cars, broke several windows and threatened the Guardia who turned up.
Due to his previous drink driving convictions, the local magistrate has remanded him in custody until a trial can be arranged.

Al Capone was done for tax evasion!
Some people never learn.
