A man, believed to YouTube star Heavy D, has been arrested on suspicion of murder after Arsenal mascot Gunnersaurus was found beheaded this morning, according to club and police sources.
Mr. D, famous for his loud voice on the popular YouTube channel Arsenal Fan TV, was arrested close to the scene by local police, after the enormous bipedal carnivore was found lifeless and without a head close to his home, the Emirates stadium in north London.
According to a source close to the story, Heavy D – who was bitterly angry after Arsenal’s defeat last night – was seen roaming and shouting outside of Arsenal’s stadium early this morning, before police spotted him next to a tree just metres from the corpse of the beloved 12-foot-tall green tyrannosaurus, whispering “another loss” and “BOOM” to himself.
The 65 million-year-old theropod is said to have contacted police weeks ago to enact a barring order against Mr. D and several other Arsenal Fan TV regulars, after repeated pleas were ignored.
A police statement read: “We offer our sincere condolences to Arsenal Football Club and its fans. Gunnersaurus was much loved but is now in a better place, with the rest of his family, eating smaller dinosaurs.”
The statement also apologised for the force’s failure to consider Arsenal Fan TV a serious threat, despite regular bouts of strange and dangerous behaviour in public.
