Some say he has a problem with authority. Others say he's actually capable of being in two places at the same time, and getting arrested in both. All we know is that Top Gear is making less sense with every passing day.

One of the BBC car show's myriad blogs reports that the enigmatic test driver known to all as The Stig was "sensationally" arrested by police in Dublin for some unknown incident, possibly involving assault on a "hairy biker" or a swan. Not much else was said, other than that the arresting Garda officer was friendly and that the program's live action show is set to visit the Irish city in December.

Meanwhile, TG frontman Jeremy Clarkson disclosed in his regular column in The Sunday Times that the Stig was also detained in the Mojave Desert, where the crew was apparently filming another misadventure in America. According to Clarkson, "a lorry full of soldiers" mistook Stiggy for a Muslim since he's not fat. Right... For our part, we'll take both stories with a grain of salt as big as Stig's helmet while we wait for mug shots from either incident to surface.

        One problem with the picture, the police in Ireland are called Gardaí and they dont have seperate departments for different cities.

      The Stig is like Chuck Norris if he drove cars for a living

      Some say he's illegal in 17 states... California must be one of them.

      And I'll bet the Governator has something to do with it...

        He's only diverting attention from toothless, ugly Brits to some plump Yanks.
        Just imagine how fat the brits would be if they had dental care.

      Luckily in Italy we do not see Top Gear, on the normal ground TV. It's on Sky, I think... but Sky as well is not much popular. As far as I understand, it's quite a lame show, full of that arrogant british humor that we do not like at all. I still wonder how the Britons can like it as well, but hey, they are Britons... always criticizing Italy, our Government and our behaviors. Not considering that our economy has recently overtaken theirs. They are still crying, about this...http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financetopics/recession/6418344/UK-economy-overtaken-by-Italy.html

      JC's column dates back to July 9, 2006...
        • 5 Years Ago
        x2 to that, i'm sure it would be outrageously expensive though, but damnit i'd still pay it!
        • 5 Years Ago
        is that right? goes to show you that news sometimes are not that new after all. I just want top gear back in action. I hope they release all their series in DVD so that I can have them all.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Mojave Desert would be the 29 Palms Marine base? "a lorry full of soldiers" would be quite common anywhere near these parts of town, the idea of one showing up at the location of The Stig is not very believable however haha
