Woody Woodpecker impressions heard in Vancouver court

A man charged in connection with a B&E made Woody Woodpecker prints via video from prison

A man charged with a break and admission to Vancouver recently made an impression of cartoon character Woody Woodpecker in a court appearance via video.

Myles Charles Archer appeared before Vancouver Provincial Court Judge Jennifer Oulton on Nov. 24 for a bail hearing.

Vancouver Police Department spokesman Const. Tania Visintin said officers responded to a residential building near Homer and Pacific streets on Nov. 23 after reports of a break-in.

“The suspect climbed onto the scaffolding outside the building and gained access to the 28th floor,” Visintin said.

Archer was arrested and jailed that night, Visintin said.

He is charged with burglary with intent to commit an offense.

While details of a case discussed in a bail hearing are generally covered by a statutory restraining order, a defendant’s conduct in court is not.

Several times, Archer made an impression on Woody Woodpecker, a cartoon character known for a manic laugh.

Oulton put Archer’s case on hold until Friday, November 26th. He remains in custody.

“That’s all, folks,” Archer added.
