Who, that guy? Never heard of him. What? Well, OK, maybe I saw him once or twice. He was having lunch, right? Leaning over some book or something. So what? Is that a crime? I don't know if he was writing anything down. Why should I? I keep to myself. Like those guys playing Scrabble. Huh? I don't know who they were, never saw them before in my life. Kept my distance, too, that guy looked pretty confused. Dunno why. Why should I?
What, the thing with the glass? I didn't have anything to do with that, I was on the other side of the restaurant. Yeah, some klutz waiter decides to drop a full glass of water on the floor. Broken glass everywhere. No, I didn't offer to help. Stay out of trouble, that's what I always say. Besides, he had those two other guys helping him. And some do-gooder gave him a bunch of napkins, too.
Two hours later? I don't remember. Whaddya mean, you can put me at the scene? Well, maybe I was there. Yeah, he was there too. Buncha his cronies with him. Talking about that stupid statue everyone knows about. I stayed out of it. Kept my distance, you know, I don't need that kind of trouble. No, I didn't see anybody on a bike, no, nobody riding all over the place in traffic. Look, are you gonna charge me or what? Yeah? Well, news flash, copper, I want a lawyer.
