You have to admire the studied indifference to the law. Then again, it IS Liverpool!

“A man convicted of drinking and driving at a Liverpool court hearing got straight into his car and drove away!

Judge Ian Lomax jailed him for 10 weeks for what he said was “the most blatant breach I have seen in a long time”.
