High or harebrained?

A video of a man who was asked if he had stolen a motorbike by a policeman received a lot of attention (838 shares and more than 700 likes).

Despite the seriousness of the situation and the trouble he was probably going to be in, the man answered with humour and didn’t stop laughing.

The odd reaction led to Facebook users’ speculation if the guy in the video was a psychopath or maybe high on drugs.

One Facebook user simply declared the man to be a “psycho” and said he shouldn’t be convicted.

Another user commented: “Get caught and act crazy,” suggesting that the man in the video is faking a psychological problem so he would be spared a charge.

Though many Facebook users believed the man’s psychological problem fake, there were others who expressed pity for him.

Nato Wikie wrote: “He hides a thousand words in his answer. Nobody should make fun of him.”
