Raymond Scott in court over Shakespeare First Folio theft


An eccentric British book dealer appeared in court Tuesday, charged with stealing a rare First Folio of Shakespeare’s plays from a university library. Self-described “dilettante” Raymond Scott, 51, arrived for the brief hearing in a chauffeur-driven silver stretch limo, dressed almost entirely in white and holding a cigar and an opened cup of instant noodles. He read aloud from Shakespeare’s “Richard III” before entering the court.

Instant noodles?
