THE ‘citizen’s arrest’ is just a plot device from 80s TV series The Dukes of Hazzard, it has emerged.
Following a Shoreditch hipster’s attempt to arrest Tony Blair, it emerged that this method of apprehending a criminal only works in a backwoods fictional universe.
Legal expert Emma Bradford said: “After driving their Dodge Charger through some barns, Bo and Luke would perform a citizen’s arrest while the local law enforcement agencies drove their patrol car into a swamp.
“But the Dukes were just some made-up men with a fast car who also happened to believe in justice for all – despite their obvious love for the Confederacy.
“If you try doing a citizen’s arrest in real life you’ll get told to fuck off. Unless of course you’re a black guy trying to do one in Hazzard County.”
