Police Not Whimsical Enough for Caprice

Sorry... it's the best pun I could come up with right now for this bit of hilarity:

When model Caprice tried using her celebrity status to dazzle a police officer who had just pulled her over for drink-driving, she hoped he would be sympathetic to her.

But the lingerie model was taken aback when the PC asked for her name and, when she replied 'Caprice', he inquired: 'Caprice who?'

PC Flashman told the court that, at first, he did not recognise the superstar.

He said: 'I could see a white female of scrawny build with bare shoulders in her late 30s wearing heavy make-up and she had a reddened spot in the right centre of her cheek.'

He then asked her name and she simply replied: 'Caprice.'

PC Flashman said: "I asked again: "Caprice who?"

'It did seem to annoy her somewhat that I didn't recognise her and she replied in a stern tone: "Caprice."

'I was not sure if that was her first or last name and asked: "How do you spell your surname?"'

Finally, the penny began to drop for PC Flashman when he remembered she had been in a Pizza Hut advert with Jonathan Ross.

The best part? She claims the high breathalizer reading was because she was taking Cipro and not because of the 2 bottles of wine she had that day.
