Is that an iPod in your pocket, or should I call the police?

Gadgets will soon come with health warnings, if the experience of a commuter in Stoke-on-Trent, reported in the Metro, is repeated.

While changing track on his iPod, a fellow commuter called the police thinking it was a gun.

Poor Darren Nixon was quite literally staring down the barrel of a gun before being bundled into a van and whisked away for questioning.

Rest asssured, Downtime will not be using its imitation Walther PPK cigarette lighter at the bus stop tonight.

Unfortunately, poor Darren Nixon has almost certainly been DNA tested and will remain on that particular suspects register for the rest of his life...
