Licensed victualler drunk

Hertfordshire Mercury, 4th September 1915


At Hertford Borough Sessions John Tumbrill, 62, Licensee of ‘The Bull’ public-house, Bull Plain, was charged with being drunk and disorderly on Monday.  He said he was not drunk but excited.  P.C. Green stated that on Monday morning he saw the defendant drunk in Bull Plain shouting and using abusive language.  He advised him to go home, but he would not do so, and eventually a soldier got him home.  The defendant, however, came out again and had to be locked up.  P.S. Wright said the defendant was drunk when he went to the police station.  The defendant said all this trouble arose through Mr Rowley’s man going into his house against his master’s wishes, but he never encouraged the man to go there.  The Bench inflicted a fine of 10s..
