The Masked Tulip

Drunken Man Pleads Guilty To Riding Horse Home From Pub

Recommended Posts

So... this bloke is a passenger on a horse and cart riding through the streets of Llanelli at night along with several other horse and carts. A convoy of six horse and carts no less.

The Police stop them.

The other horse and carts - don't laugh - do a runner.

The driver of this particular horse and cart.... does a runner. The drunk passenger is left alone on the horse and cart.

The drunken passenger is then arrested and appears before the magistrate who bound him over for 6 months and told that if he is caught drunk again he will be fined £50.

QUESTION: - How much did this Police operation and resulting court case cost? You couldn't make this stuff up.

I don't get this one.

he was a passenger.

can't exactly charge him with driving Mr Ed under the influence can you?

slightly unfair IMHO.

if he was riding bareback on said donkey/ass/horse through the town and challenged the local mounted policeman to a joust with some unclaimed scaffolding I might have been more inclined to see the judges perspective.

Yes, it seems very unfair. Sounds like the plod just arrested him for being drunk and disorderly because they missed the driver and the other FIVE horse and carts.

If this bloke had being walking home drunk through Llanelli - a sight that you can see with many men and women on any given weekend - would he have been stopped let alone arrested?

Did the horse and carts have lights on? Were they a danger? Was this at night in the dark?

He wasn't fined by the Magistrate so you can read into that what you will.

you get bound over for breaching the peace.

The defendant was bound over.

I imagine the group of carters was making a bit of a nuisance and Police arrested people for causing the nuisance.

Im not sure if it is still an offence, but being drunk in charge of a conveyance was arrestable, as was furious riding, or maybe there was no bail of hay on the horse drawn conveyance to feed the hungry horse...god help anyone banging their doormats and carpets before 8AM.

Unfair his being saddled with a conviction...

Looking at the sentence it's not something that'll trouble him furlong.

You know you have been really drunk when you wake up the next morning with the horse in bed next to you.

Yeah, but at least I didn't stab the poor ol' horse in the neck.

The great thing about a horse, is that it will know the way home, however drunk you are! Try that with a motorcycle. :blink: They are pretty stupid and think you live in a hedge. :wacko:
