On the streets of Hassan, Karnataka, a scene straight out of a film played out when a young man, reportedly drunk, stole a police bike (and a police cap) and rode off, though not quite into the sunset.

The vide (above) – which looks like it was recorded by a friend – shows the drunk man visibly proud of his antics as he rides along the street, cap firmly on his head, giggling happily.

Not for long, of course. A policeman catches up with him after what ANI reported was a chase lasting just a kilometre. To complete the filmi picture, the person behind the camera shouts: “Superstar Rajnikanth!”
