Megatron busted for dope smuggling - claims amnesia

You know, its always funny to see what people will claim to try and get out of being convicted. In our good old wacky New Zealand, a plucky young chap named Nicholas (last name not given for fear of shaming whole family) has happily gone down that path.

The young man was by all accounts a standard Uni student, but after an alleged knock to the noggin, he lost his mind, legally changed his name to Megatron and transformed (ha ha) into the mindless drug hoover we see today.

Why Megatron? Why not? There's probably many other names you could use in the same situation (going out of your freaking mind) but that's as good as any other. Maybe Trainspotting was a bit obvious, and Orient Express was taken.

Needless to say, after a failed attempt at drug smuggling, he was nabbed in Canada, deported back to New Zealand, and put before a judge who duly sent him down for 6 years and 6 months. He is not being held in suspended animation underneath the Hoover Dam, but rather he is more likely at Paremoremo being nervous in the shower.

I wonder if Starscream, Barricade and Rawhide are coming to break him out?
