I guess not…  A 12 year boy from Manchester England was arrested for throwing

(wait for it)

a cocktail sausage.  No, I’m not kidding.  You just can’t make this kind of thing up!

The boy threw the sausage at a 74 year old man, who reported to police that the boy had thrown a stone.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said that because the boy had been spoken to by police three previous times, he had to be arrested.

A review of the case has been launched after a youth court judge spoke up:

“If he has done what was suggested it is very bad behaviour,” District Judge Tim Devas was reported as saying in the Manchester Evening News. “But is it in the public interest to prosecute a 12-year-old boy who threw a sausage?”

As for the 74 year old…well, I don’t know, but some people have no sense of humour.
