Almost like Chicago….
Strolling back from the Christmas market on Saturday night when all of a sudden 4 (FOUR) police cars with sirens a-wailing and blue lights a-flashing come flying around various corners, pounce on a bendy-bus in the Ludwigstrasse and surround it.
Out leap a horde of police people and enter the bus at speed.
I thought someone had just watched Pelham 1-2-3 and had at least hijacked our local public transport at gunpoint.
No such luck.
As far as I could work out, 4 female Mainz 05 fans had been stepping out of line, annoying bus driver and fellow passengers.
They’ll doubtless be in court on Monday morning, charged with celebrating without due cause (we lost to Frankfurt via a VERY dubious penalty in the 81st minute..) and singing Humba Humba Humba Täterä without a license.
