Having watched and giggled though MacIntyre's Big Sting last night the end left me rather puzzled (doesn't take much)
For those who didn't see it, I'll set the scene - it's been done before
Fake competition with fake websites, advertising a new football magazine is launched, with big prizes (a car or cash) and the invitations are sent to people that have outstanding warrants for failing to appear at court and have been successful in evading traditional methods of capture.
Offender turns up - poses for pic while their ID is verified, a driving licence (in case they win the car) is needed and once that happens they go onto the game, a penalty shot
Winning every time they then go down the tunnel to be greeted by, as Donal puts it "The suprise of their life." They are greeted by several officers and arrested on warrant for failing to appear.
With me so far? - I was up to this point...
At the end it said how one man had still, after being arrested at the fake show, gone on to fail to appear - now, I was under the impression that when arrested on warrant for failing to appear, the offender is remanded until court, as there is a high change of them failing to appear...
Anyone I've locked up on a fail to appear warrant has been automatically remanded till court.
Can anyone enlighten me as to why these people were then bailed? It was the MET, in case that makes any difference...
