Scottish policeman breaks up bar brawl, tears up the stage singing karaoke

Sgt John Harris belted out Gloria Gaynor's 'I will Survive' in the Waterloo Bar in Glasgow

In the Waterloo Bar in Glasgow, Scotland, the ‘Wacky Wednesday’ weirdness was well and truly on display this week when a police officer responded to reports of an alleged bar brawl, only to then take to the stage, grab the mic and give it socks singing Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive on the karaoke machine.

After dealing with the call, Sgt John Harris belted out the disco classic, much to the surprise and delight of the bar’s astonished patrons.

Chief Inspector Mark Sutherland of Police Scotland told the BBC: “Around 19.10 hours on Wednesday evening, officers were called following an alleged assault within the Waterloo Bar on Argyle Street in Glasgow city centre.

“A full and thorough investigation led to the arrest of a 23-year-old male who is expected to appear in Glasgow Sheriff Court on 2nd June.

“Once the inquiry had concluded and the victim’s safety ensured, Sgt John Harris from out city centre community policing team was encouraged to participate in karaoke ongoing in the pub. ‘Sgt Jon’ took to the stage which helped defuse any simmering tensions in the pub.

“I was pleased to see that once the incident had been professionally concluded, my officers were able to share a lighter moment with those who remained in the pub.”
