Now this is a character worthy of a book

It's not often that an unusual character much less possible criminal enters the world of libraries. Unless you are in Britain where apparently rare book stealers abound.
This genius who is accused of stealing a copy of Shakespeare's First Folio from a University worth over 3 million pounds, shows up at his hearing wearing a fur coat, in a stretch limo, drinking Dom Perignon and eating pot-o-noodles. He of course says he is innocent and is now turning his notoriety into a book.
My favorite part is that he thought he would arrive in a chauffeured limo with either the Pussycat Dolls or Girls Aloud. Love it...
The trial continues...
