PSNI Reveal Top Tyrone Excuses

PSNI tightening up

The PSNI have released a statement warning Tyrone people to stop using ‘silly excuses’ for all types of misdemeanours. The move comes after the much-publicised court case where Simon Begley from Moortown got off using his phone whilst driving his Davy Brown by claiming it was actually a shell and he was listening to the sea. No shell was found in his tractor to which Begley replied “sure I f**ked it into the field because I could hear none with the police siren behind me”.

The statement listed the top 5 excuses:

  • (speeding) I wasn’t speeding. My new haircut makes me look fast (POMEROY)
  • (TV licence) That thing in the corner? I thought it was a lamp (CLADY)
  • (littering) Oh, when it said ‘fine for littering’ I thought it meant it was ok (COOKSTOWN)
  • (speeding) I was going 100mph because i’ve new brake pads in and I don’t want to wear them down (BROCAGH)
  • (red light jump) My wife ran off with a cop from Cappagh and when I saw your motor behind me I was afeard he was bringing her back (KILDRESS)

PSNI spokesman Constable Trimble added:

“Do they think we’re stupid? We’re not falling for that any more. Just last week we uncovered a poitin distillery in Derrytresk. When apprehended, the man said ‘poitin? Catch yerself on. This is just an elaborate tea-making factory. Would you like a fig roll?’ We let him off but that’s the last time.”

Serial law-breaker Jonny Kelly from Ballygawley maintains the PSNI are just blowing hot air:

“Aye, dead on PSNI. Sure last night a cop caught me piddlin in the middle of the roundabout at 2am. I just said I was ‘a bit mad’ and he let me go. They’re tarra afraid of wrongful arrests.”

Kelly has since been lifted for using tin foil for break lights on his Micra.

“since our apparitions, the part of us which appears, are so momentary compared with the other, the unseen part of us, which spreads wide, the unseen might survive, be recovered somehow attached to this person or that, or even haunting certain places, after death. Perhaps - perhaps.”
