Can't cope.

We'd say there were a few red-faced garda knocking around Cabra in the early hours of this morning.

Irish Independent crime reporter Robin Schiller took to Twitter to reveal the embarrassing incident. 

According to reports, gardai believed that the item they were called to deal with was a "suspected ball bearing bomb" (we swear we're note making this up.)

Schiller writes that a source said, "This, to say the least, is a new one to the gardai who were at the scene."

It is believed that the whole scenario happened around 3AM, when the Luas was not running.

Only in Ireland, as they say.
