Hertfordshire Mercury, 1st August 1914


At Cheshunt Petty Sessions, Alfred Robinson, of Cheshunt, a carman, was charged with being drunk in charge of a horse and cart, on 22nd July, at High Street, Waltham Cross.  He pleaded not guilty.

PC Wright said that he had seen the defendant, who was in charge of a horse and cart, collide with a bicycle.  The witness spoke to him and found him to be drunk.  He had to be taken to the Police Station.

Station Sergeant Drew proved that when the defendant arrived at the police station he had been very drunk.  When in the cells, he had made such a row that his boots had to be taken off.

The defendant was fined 10 shillings and costs, or 14 days.
