The Smoking Gun provides some background to the YouTube video that has gone viral recently:

After getting busted last November in Edson, Alberta, Robert Wilkinson, 29, was placed in the back of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police cruiser, where he launched into an a capella version of the Queen classic (complete with musical interludes).

Wilkinson, who was unaware that the police video had gone viral, said that he is a karaoke singer who has performed all 113 Beatles songs available on karaoke machines. Asked how he was able to recall almost all the “Bohemian Rhapsody” lyrics, Wilkinson sought to display his memory by rattling off a long string of digits in Pi.

Before launching into “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Wilkinson, who was not handcuffed, lectured a RCMP officer, claiming that he was not intoxicated. “You’re actually an ignorant fu***g c***. So f*** you buddy,” Wilkinson told the cop, who had earlier pulled over his truck...

A home brewer, Wilkinson noted in a post last month that he was “solving the world's problems, one beer at a time.”

And home-brewed beer, at that!

His YouTube page includes a video chronicling his 2004 dismissal from the Vancouver Film School, as well as clips showing him twice getting punched in the face by a friend.

Because, as he puts it, "Physical violence is the least of my priorities"
