How bizarre !

Hertfordshire Mercury, 10th January 1914


At St Albans Quarter Sessions, John Shufflebotham (37), a coal miner, was indicted with unlawfully and maliciously damaging the glass of a window, the property of the Victoria Bazaar Co Ltd, to the value of £6, at Watford, on 28th December.

The prisoner pleaded guilty.

The prisoner said that he had come from the Potteries to London with the idea of getting his living at tattooing, but found that he was unable to do so and thus started on his way home.  When he had got to Watford, he could not get a bed, walked about until he was cold, and then smashed the window.

The Magistrates bound him over and told him to get home at once.
