Sgt Morley said that on Saturday night last at 9.50, he saw the defendant in the Fox Inn Conisboro┬┤. She was drunk when using very bad language. The landlord was trying to get her out. When she got in the street she was cursing and swearing at the landlord.

He requested her to go home she went part of the way and then returned again cursing and swearing as before. The landlord said yet turned out three times before that night.

PC Thirlby corroborated the evidence of the previous witness.

The woman in defence said her father and her had a few words; it was a “family affair.”
