Night in the drunk cell at South Melbourne police station. No recollection of how I got there, a few woolly memories in the morning of being told if I signed here & here I could have my shoes and belt back and leave.

I am not a hardened crim.

One poster on here has done some serious time...but not for me to say really. I've played football in Chelmsford Nick a few times. Bumped into an old mate in there....stupidly I was surprised and asked what he was doing there...murder he said. Found out he stabbed his wife's lover over 20 times. Got a massive sentence because it was calculated and planned.

Honestly was gutted as he was a top man and very likeable.

No.Been in Police cells a fair few times,that's enough.
Several uncles have done time.1 actually was murdered in Pentonville and his younger brother did 20 years spread over 40.
Such a waste on both accounts

It's sad when you hear stories like that, as you say probably a sane and good bloke, just driven over the edge, okay not the right way to act at all but still one moment of madness, not like his a career criminal etc.

One night in a police cell. Rolled up to a house as it was being busted for a very large amount of drugs, had a small lump of hash in my pocket and that was enough to get me led away for the night in case i was part of the big picture. Under normal circs plod would have ignored it.

Mate of mine has done a couple of stints, pain in the arse as visiting is a right hassle.

Probably a decent guy, who just simply ends up murdering a person. After having a bad patch with the missus...

Five or six times overnight in my late teens / early 20's (do you still get a McDonald's breakfast?), & 28 days in a guardhouse aged 17.

You get a McD's after a night in the grey bar hotel? No wonder this country is going to the f*cking dogs if you get a free McMuffin after being nabbed for ABH.

Certainly didn't get a McDonald's the morning after in Northampton police cells... though I'd probably have thrown it up anyway...

If you wrap whatever you're taking in in cling film instead of tin foil it should hurt less 8-)

No and would like it to stay that way. I've been nicked twice for being a prick when pissed and ended up in a cell overnight both times . The first time I was lucky and got let out in the morning with no charge, second time not so lucky and ended up in court and got a fine.
This was about 30 years ago, I'd like to think I've grown up a bit since then.
