Pole let off by the court, but not by his wife!
A drunk 31-year-old Pole who went to Qawra police station to buy batteries and became aggressive when the policemen could not help him, was conditionally discharged by a court this morning after he apologised.
Lucas Gozdzikrewicz, who has lived in Qawra since November, admitted in court that he was severely drunk when, early last Tuesday, he needed to buy batteries and went to the police station instead of a shop.
When the officers could not help him, he left, but then returned and was aggressive, to the extent that the officers had to restrain him and put him in a cell.
By the morning, when he had recovered, he apologised profusely.
Police Inspector Therese Sciberras told the court that the accused was 'a totally different person' by the morning.
Mr Gozdzikrewicz apologised to the officers again in court today, saying he should have never consumed alcohol on an empty stomach.
The court noted that the accused had a clean conduct sheet and said that while he should have known better, it could see that the apology was genuine.
The accused was, therefore, conditionally discharged for two years.
As the accused was leaving the court, his wife told the police inspector that although the magistrate had not given her husband a punishment, 'she would'!
