Man who robbed lingerie shop while believing he was a female space elf may have “blurred reality and fantasy”

Oh, really?

A man accused of robbing a Belfast lingerie shop at knifepoint has fallen back on a time honoured defence – namely, his claim that he believed he was a female elf at the time.

…While Boyd maintains that he is innocent of the crime, he admits that he can’t be sure that the metahuman Beho did not plan to rob the store.

Don’t you just hate it when that happens?
