Man hides firework in bum to avoid police
Jurgen Bach took the extreme measure when he was stopped after allegedly setting off home-made fireworks across Munich.
The 20-year-old was still arrested... and he hasn’t been let off yet.
Like his German counterpart, the unnamed prankster - who had recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq - also inserted a Halloween rocket in a place definitely not recommended by the Fireworks Code.
As onlookers cheered, he lit the blue touchpaper and proceeded to incur serious burns to his bum region.
Onlookers said the chap had been attempting to re-enact a scene from TV prank show Jackass where the character Steve-O shoots a firework from his rear.
'There were around 40 of us after the bonfire had finished,' explained witness Daniel Kassim, 16.
'This lad was saying, “This is boring, what can we do?”. He then put a rocket up his backside and set light to it.
'Everyone was laughing and didn't believe he'd do it. He pulled his trousers down and it exploded within seconds.
'No one thought he was hurt. But then he stood up and walked a few metres before stumbling and falling to the ground. There was quite a bit of blood.'
Don't try this at home, kids.
