It's behind me .Hooray!

I hate New Year.

I was deftly out manoeuvred by my seasoned peers and found myself having to cover at another station over the New Year 'Celebrations'

This time of year always reminds me of the Panto season. We always seem to get the stock characters brought through the players entrance.

There was Prince Charming. He had walked down a line of young ladies waiting to get into a club and had grabbed at what he could. He took exception to one of the girls pushing him off and he had punched her.He lost Round 2 to the officer who saw this and was dragged in.

We had Cinderella. She had lost both her shoes around midnight and ended up getting arrested as she was continually abusive to her 'coach' driver(aka mini-cab)and the officers who tried to help.
The ugly sisters turned up later at the front counter and were giving the reception staff grief demanding she be released.

A notable mention was Jack. His particular Beanstalk was climbing on pedestrian barriers and would not see reason and was 'fee-fi-fo-fumd' and thrown in the van.

Then there was Aladdin.Unfortunately it wasn't his lamp he was rubbing when police turned up

Ok,we didn't have the Forty Thieves but there must have been approaching that number of simple drunken idiots.
One recurring theme with the officers who brought them in was the efforts made to tell them to be quiet and move on and avoid arrest.It started with'Ok move on,have a good night' to 'This is the 'F**k off pill' take it. And still they wouldn't take the hint.

And Sleeping Beauty.. that was me having had about 5 hours sleep in about 60 odd hours!

And so 2008 is here..not such a good start with incidents like in Lancashire and Swindon

Anyway to fellow Bloggers and those who take the time to dip into this blog(well at least 99.99 percent of them)Have a good, safe 2008. take care and in the words of the late,great Dave Allen 'may your God go with you'

Hi - I am in the process of compiling a book of true police stories and was hoping to include this one (anonymously) - absolutely no problem if you'd rather I didn't.

All the best
