Bank Holiday bender

Hertfordshire Mercury, 7th August 1915


At Ware Petty Sessions, Joseph Halsey, labourer, of Hoddesdon, was charged with being drunk and disorderly on August 2nd.

Inspector Moles said he saw the prisoner near Rye House; he was drunk and bleeding from the cheek.  He was very excited, and later on he agreed to go home with the witness.  When he got a little way he became very violent and used bad language.

Owing to the attitude of the crowd, it was necessary to get a conveyance to bring him to Ware Police Station.

The defendant said he had not had any drink for two years and he had met a man against whom he had an old standing grievance and they quarrelled.

Superintendent Handley said there were twelve previous convictions against the defendant, who was fined 15 shillings.
