the FRANZ FERDINAND‘s ALEX KAPRANOS has been busted by Mexican cops for public boozing.
Just been busted by Mexico City cops for drinking tequila in street. All fine. My American friend Grant sorted it. My friend Grant, for those who haven’t met him — Mexican cops seem to hold him in high regard.
this appears to be a reference to the ULYSSES S. GRANT, who led the Union Army to victory in the American Civil War, and who served as the 18th president of the United States from 1869 to 1877. the GRANT’s face appears on the US $50 bill.
fyi – technically it’s illegal to drink alcohol in public in Mexico, although many people do so in tourist areas.
