    ... and then two officers turned up and I was taken back to the police station I had just been from!!! I then had to wait another while and the young officer (who was actually pretty smart and was an inspector in the police force) eventually took me to the scene of the crime and had me reacting out what happened in broad daylight which the locals found rather humorous.
