Sour note with cops
A driver was warned after he was caught playing an instrument instead of keeping his hands on the wheel of his car. Officers were stunned to spot a person playing with what appeared to be chanter from a set of bagpipes, while driving on Crawford St, Dunedin, yesterday. Acting Sergeant Bryce Johnson said he spotted the man with both hands on the instrument, rather than on his car’s steering wheel. The sheepish man said he was a bagpipe player, but was merely doing an ‘air guitar’ version. He was given an official warning.
