Pizza thief too fat to attend court
LIAM Johnston, 21, has pleaded guilty to obtaining almost £120 worth of goods – namely, Domino’s pizas – by fraud (a fake credit card). But he’s not at Livingston Sheriff Court because he’s too fat, or “medically unfit”, as his lawyer calls it.
Mr Johnston tips the scales at 40 stone.
Johnston, is now “getting advice on what benefits he could claim after losing his Job Seekers Allowance.” He has been asked to be examined by his GP.
One might suggest a cure all – that Mr Johnston take up working for Domino’s as a walking pizza delivery man to pay off any debt. Or that the courtroom docks be made larger, and the scales of justice less biased towards the thin and slippery.
