CONSETT, England, April 15 (UPI) -- A British book dealer accused of stealing a Shakespeare first edition arrived in court dressed as Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara.

He arrived in Consett Magistrates' Court with three women and a bodyguard who were also dressed as revolutionaries.

The Sun said Scott previously showed up for a court date dressed as Boss Hogg from popular TV show "Dukes of Hazzard."
