Steve McGrawley was arrested on Monday in Blackpool for public disorder when he refused to take down his offensive Christmas lights. Let's be honest, it;s just a bit of fun!

The father-of-four had put up a light in the shape of a festive bell and then spelled out "end" with fairy lights next to it. He had previously put up his lights in the shape of a penis, and other swear words. AHHH, BELLEND! Got it!

As you can see in the video, the police were called and asked him to take down the lights. At first he says he will turn them off, but the police insist that he take the lights down - they clearly don't trust him!

The 43 year old prankster initially refused to take the Christmas lights down because he was naked.

That's an original excuse at least. Take a look at the Bantersaurus Rex.

An officer told him he could either take his Christmas lights down or be charged with a public order offence.

"You're knocking my door in for Christmas lights?" he asked the police officers, in disbelief.

He did eventually put some clothes on and took the lights down - and then was charged a £90 fine for his behaviour.

According to the Daily Mail, Steve admitted to having even ruder signs: "I did have one up saying 'cunt' but they made me take it down the night before. Then they've come round again on Monday and apparently it's still anti-social."

"I thought it was quite artistic," he said.

Many of his neighbours complained, worrying that children would see his rude light displays and be upset. If a little child is fully aware with the intricate details of the word cunt and bellend, they're probably not going to get upset.

Steve said he had put up the Christmas lights because he was spending Christmas alone for the first time. Mate, your kids won't want to visit you if you're the embarrassment of the neighbourhood!
