It's good to see that the razor-sharp minds of our esteemed judiciary remain intact even after several jars. District judge David Messenger, arrested recently following a ruckus in a kebab shop, refused to go along quietly with the law. "What proof have you got that you're police officers?" shouted the canny judge, who was allegedly somewhat the worse for wear. Proof of their credentials was clearly found, as the rozzers finally got him into a cell. At which point Messenger began banging incessantly on his cell door. Again, his legally trained mind came to the rescue when quizzed by the boys in blue as to the reason for the ear-splitting din. He claimed that he was "a drummer and I'm drumming". Messenger, in court last week on the wrong side of the dock in Selby, denied being drunk.
