Drunk 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Singer Dresses As Viking In Court

Internet sensation wears Norse helmet to court hearing.

Earlier in the year, we reported about an arrested drunk guy who became a YouTube sensation thanks to his rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the back of a police car. Now, that individual is back in the public eye after showing up to the court hearing for his DUI charge dressed... as a Viking.

Robert Wilkinson, the Alberta based star of the video, attended court wearing a Viking helmet, complete with horns, sunglasses and a NASA t-shirt reading "I need my space." Wilkinson was without a defense lawyer, and chose to defend himself on the grounds that his arrest was a violation of charter rights. Needless to say, he didn't win the case. He has been fined $1,400 and prohibited from driving for one year.

We wonder if Wilkinson's defense was similar to the tirade that he gave the cops before bursting into song:

"I have done nothing wrong, even the situation where you grabbed me has nothing to do with being sort of intoxicated, as you proclaim. I didn't see that I was intoxicated when you grabbed me. I have an ear, arrrooogreeaah, but it doesn't even matte."

    He's such a poor boy,nobody loves him.
    Oh mama mia mama mia LET HIM GO!!!
    What do you mean he doesn't support your system? He goes to court when he has to.
    Though I do appreciate the Megadeth referance, I don't think it fits here.
    He said that his charter of rights was violated, so maybe he'll sing something off "The System Has Failed" next xD
    i hate drunk driving. putting yourself behind a wheel intoxicated is playing russian roulette with other peoples lives. now all that aside. this guy is hilarious. although kind of a media-slut...
    This man is a f*cking hero! I mean sure, he drank and drove, we get that, but going to court in a Viking helmet? Glorious.
    if i had to pick a way to prolong my 15 minutes of fame, im pretty sure a viking helmet wouldnt be one of my options
    Robby ain't need no car, haha. I've had the(dis?)pleasure of meeting him a few times and he just rides a bike everywhere anyways.
