Jeremy Clarkson 'May Do Some Burglary' As Police Guard Olympics, Arrest Journalists

Scotland Yard is hot on the tails of a handful of Rupert Murdoch's journalists. London-based reporters from the Mirror, Daily Star, and Sun were arrested, two for alleged illegal payments to officials, and one for an alleged criminal breach of privacy.

Being the veteran journo he is, Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson sounded off on the latest in the string of about 50 arrests, joking that he should commit burglary.

Here's his Facebook post:

Half the police are at the Olympics and the other half are busy arresting journalists. I may do some burglary.

Oh Clarkson, you are a card. Keep dazzling us with that wry wit.

There are already more than 300 comments on the post, which Clarkson put up this morning. There are a few begging him not to use James May as a getaway driver (he'd get lost), and a couple advising him not to use a Reliant Robin as a getaway car.

Sound advice.
