Today is another big day in the life of Steady ‘hic’ Eddie, the borough’s number one piss-head.
Having already pleaded guilty to one charge of drink driving earlier this week, he is set to make another appearance before Peterlee Magistrates Court on a separate charge of failing to provide a sample.
This incident is unconnected with Monday’s incident where he was seen throwing a bottle over a wall before getting into his car and attempting to drive home. Police were left with little choice other than to stop him after he was seen weaving across the road. After providing a possitive breath sample he was arrested and locked up for the night before appearing before South Shields Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Mr Monkey reckons that councillor McAtominey may have a change of heart today and after months of prevarication and using every delaying tactic in the book he’s likely to come clean throw in the towel by changing his plea to guilty.
If he does, lets hope the magistrates in Peterlee take a tough line when it comes to sentencing and that they make an example of this sorry individual who thinks the law doesn’t apply to him. But Mr Monkey reckons he might just get a custodial sentence.
Mr Monkey thinks it’s time Steady ‘hic’ Eddie gets what he deserves .. it’s long overdue.
