A city police department source said: “A patrol car was called to Wikipedia HQ yesterday, just as the 24-hour Wikipedia stoppage was coming to an end.
“As they entered the corridor leading to Mr Wales’ office, the lights went back on and Mr Wales was seen emerging from a meeting room, doing his zipper up and ruffling the hair of a five foot, two inch-high female chimpanzee, to whom he said: “Give me a call. I’ll give you administrator rights on that page you like on mangos if you keep this our little secret.”
Specialist officers from the Primate Sex Crimes Squad were then called to attend the scene and Mr Wales was arrested.
The source added: “Mr Wales claimed that the stoppage on Wikipedia was to raise awareness of the risks posed by the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
"In fact, the stoppage merely ended up raising our awareness of man’s unquenchable lust for bodily union with primates.”
A Wikipedia employee told The Daily News: “Jimmy may seem like the missing member of Abba with his cuddly beard and piercing eyes, but when the lights go down he’s got one thing on his mind and believe me, it’s not the facilitation of user-generated encyclopaedia entries on the internet. It’s rough sex with chimpanzees.”Tweet
