Back in March, Robert Wilkinson posted a video to YouTube of him in a police car, drunkenly wailing Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody” as cops drove him to jail.

Wilkinson’s contempt for the justice system wasn’t a one-time event. The Canadian man, who chose to represent himself in court–always a brilliant legal move–showed up to his sentencing hearing in (what else?) a horned Viking helmet and a NASA t-shirt. No surprise he was found guilty and punished with a $1,400 fine.

Luckily, he received $1,000 from Tru TV for its show “World’s Dumbest Criminals,” so he only needs to make up $400. Perhaps he should auction off this shirt on eBay:
