What's a 'genuine' bloke exactly? You mean you're not a sex robot? And how is it possible to swear and spit at a police officer and not
have criminal intent?
You'll probably get off with a warning because, judging by your entitled tone, you're a wealthy white guy. Personally I hope they lock you in a barrel and fire you into the Indian Ocean.
Don't worry Casey - I was talking to my quotations engineer who is ex SPF. He voiced the opinion that Jay has most likely run out of get out of jail cards on this one as (in his words) - "The best chance for avoiding jail you have is to avoid being arrested by being too much bother for the arresting officer to write you up (i.e. plead off with the AO). If you piss the arresting officer enough (by spitting at him) that he cares enough to write you up then the IO will almost certainly support the AO and then you're at the mercy of the AGC. If the AGC pass the case down for prosecution it's very rare that you'll get off without a some clear technical error or missed evidence".[/quote]
HI sorry for not being so active.
Here is an update - I reported for Bail today and was told to come back again in 2 weeks time.
I then went and visited the IO to provide her with a letter that explains more about the situation which I forgot to mention in the interview (as I was still drunk and tired at that point!)
She asked me when I am due to go back to the UK, I said December 23rd and she said unfortunately this investigation will last more than 90 days! Therefore I won't be able to go back for christmas.
In regards to the spitting, If i remember correctly, I think the way she described it was "You then spat and it went on the officers shirt" - Therefore maybe not seeming intentional.
I actually remember NOTHING, I was black out drunk and only remember waking up in the police station the following morning.
I did mention in my letter that I used to suffer from Tourettes Syndrome as a child and it does tend to come out when I am drunk. Because i don't even remember the swearing part. Everything I mentioned in my original post here was what was told to me by the IO.
Now I know many of you would say that I am talking shit, but if this will help explain the swearing, then it makes sense to me.
I just HOPE that i just get a fine or a warning as this was really me being drunk.
The crazy part is that I was on my own and went to drink just to make myself sleepy so i'd be able to sleep after traveling. I had no idea this would happen!
