|Persecuted: St Jude Thaddeus - but not for having a flaming head...|
At the time he was wearing a 'Santa hat'. The hat turned out to be highly flammable and it caught light on a candle.
With his head on fire, the man exclaimed, "B**tard! My head is on fire!"
The Brighton man, who cannot be named due to legal reasons, is to face Court for a breach of his ASBO for having shouted in a church and causing a disturbance to others present.
Discussing his bewilderment at having to face a Court for his behaviour in the event, the man said, "If your head was on fire, wouldn't you shout too?"
This is a true story.
