Flame-Thrower Scooter Owner Arrested

Posted By Ben Goulding, 29 March, 2010 | permalink

Colin Furze, a plumber who adapted his scooter to shoot 15ft flames from the rear, has been arrested for an alleged firearms offence.

Mr Furze, modified his scooter with an anti-tailgating flame thrower operated by the flick of switch. He was featured in the press, but when police saw the pictures he was arrested and held on suspicion of possessing an object converted into a firearm.

Speaking before his arrest, he said: ”Everybody wants a flame thrower on a motor bike. I don’t need a flame thrower on the back of my bike, I’m not going to set fire to people’s car’s, it’s just something interesting to do.”

The scooter, which was built before Christmas, was Mr Furze’s third attempt at the project after the first did not ignite and the second burst into flames.
