Dundee drink driver too drunk to find the dock
TO Dundee Sheriff Cour, where Thomas Murphy, 55, is due to be sentenced after admitting driving without a licence or insurance. When stopped he was, furthermore, three times over the drink drive limit. Only, Mr Murphy can’t find the dock. STV reports that he staggers into a glass panel at the side of the dock. When he does find his way in, Sheriff Richard Davidson says he can smell alcohol on the guilty man. Davidson and Murphy are 20-feet apart.
Says Sheriff Davidson:
“Not many people in this court can’t find the dock. I hear from Mr Hampton [defending] that you have an alcohol abuse problem but rarely have I seen anyone in as bad a state as you were this morning. That is not acceptable in a public court.”
Send the man (for a lay) down.
