Drunk and incapable

Hertfordshire Mercury, 26th June 1915


At Ware Petty Sessions on Tuesday Mary Gladding, of Tonwell, was summoned for being drunk and incapable.  P.C. Emery said that on June 19, at 6 p.m., he was between Wadesmill and Watton Road, when he saw the defendant lying across the footpath.  He asked her to get up, but she could not because she was too drunk.  When the witness picked her up she could not stand, and he brought her to the Police Station and she was charged and detained.  Supt Handley said the defendant was admitted to bail the same evening at 10.30.  She was in a beastly state of drunkenness, and had a mineral water bottle in her pocket which had apparently had whisky in it.  The defendant pleaded guilty and expressed sorrow.  She was fined 4 shillings.
