A student in Linköping came into contact with the long arm of the law at the weekend after turning up for a party wearing a police shirt.

The 25-year-old was dressed to kill as he made his way to a bar in the southern Swedish town, Corren reports.

Sporting the authentic police shirt his mother had bought in a thrift store ten years earlier, the young man was an arresting figure as the night began to warm up.

But security guards at the bar did not take kindly to being upstaged in the uniform stakes and duly reported the student to the police.

When the forces of law and order arrived on the scene they immediately confiscated the offending garment. The student is now suspected of impersonating an officer and may face a fine.
