PC Field said that on the Sunday, at about 7 p.m., he had been in High Street, Stanstead Abbotts, when he saw the defendant driving the trap up the street, with another man; the pony was veering from one side of the street to the other. When near the toll bridge, the Constable called on the defendant to stop, and he did so. He was drunk and was taken into custody, but was allowed bail the following morning.
Edward Newton was fined 1 guinea.
