not arrested, but I was driven home in a garda car once for, and I quote, 'acting the bollocks'. i wouldn't mind but I didn't even throw any of the water balloons.

They said that I'd get a warning in the post or some shyte but I never did, the two gardai were fairly cool so I don't think they bothered writing it up.

Twice, once in Scotland and once over here, both times was for possession of hash, when I was done in Ireland there was a raid on our house because it was a busy place full of heads and musicians, that was back in 2001 though so hopefully a clear slate in my criminal record again by now. Apparently there is a ten year thing that if you do not re-offend your record goes clear again. Can anyone confirm this as I would still love the visit the US sometime and hopefully this old offence will not come up against me.

No not yet. Never say never.
Someone might break into my house. I might have to run over them by accident.

That's the other part I still have to come. Would be gutted if it made the papers. Only been in court for a motoring fine before.

Never been even stopped by the guards. Although I rarely drink, don't do drugs and don't hang out with scumbags so I'm not surprised that the guards have always been very polite to me.

i beat the piss out of some fella I seen attacking two girls when I ws out on the town, Turned out they robbed his phone nd he was only trying to get it back , was looking at prison time. They thought I was a phone robber too.
He was a foreigner and went back home after like the 15th time the case was put back . Got off .
I thought I had been arrested for being drunk in public until I got the summons.

Your solicitor usually will know the reporters and could ask them as a favour not to print anything. That's what my fella tried but he said that it was so funny, they printed it anyway!

Either way, it's not the end of the world: these things always blow over. We were all young and silly once (despite some of the holier than thou attitudes you might come across...)

Are you actually being charged? How serious was this row? I thought they usually just gave cautions for this kind of thing which does not require a court appearance. What did they say to you when they were letting you go?

Nope, never had any negative encounters with the law.

That said, as we all now know, if you attempt on stop a criminal you will suffer arrest, charge, a likely indictment and a jury trial costing in the region of six figures to defend against.

Yeah I got charged and have a court date in a few weeks and had to sign a bail bond. I know someone who got a caution for something similar so I'm not sure why I didn't get that - would be a lot better for me. I put up a question in the Legal forum and someone posted up a document explaining the caution system but have to read it properly later.

I have a juvenile caution from 10 years ago when I was 17 and got a motoring fine in court so don't know if that makes a difference.

The row wasn't that serious at all but I got a bit thick with the Garda when they came so didn't help myself. I got 3 charge sheets when I got out - drunk and a danger to myself and others, threatening and abusive behaviour and resisting a Garda
