    I was arrested in 1994 at the Swedish/Norwegian border for being in possession of Ritalin (10 tablets), was strip-searched (but not the 'anal' examination), blood and urine tested, and was negative!

    I worked at a kids' home in Norway and was responsible for administering Ritalin to a boy with ADHD. I forget to return my 'stash' after a 'holiday' to Greece (I had written confirmation from the Norwegian Government, authorising me to be in possession of the drug) when I finished working at the home.

    I was fined about £100, although the police and customs men felt genuinely sorry for me as I was innocent! Stupid, but innocent! ;)

    Has anyone else done something they shouldn't have?

    I'm not ashamed to say, nor proud of the fact i fell on the wrong side of the law a couple of times in my teens (30 plus years ago ;) Nothing really serious, but wrong without doubt.
    Stupidity, no other reason. Just not thinking of the consequences of my actions...and not being man enough at that age to say no to stronger characters.
    I rather think it's made me a better person, it made me more determined to do things right and to steer my own course.

    It still sometimes bugs me, 30 plus years later...i let myself down. But heyho...whats gone's gone. I put myself right...that's what matters.

    Not for years, but I have been
    a) stop 'n' searched (and lucky they didn't check the pocket on the arm of my jacket)
    :biggrin: questioned on suspicion of burglary (not guilty m'lud; I looked like the guy the helicopter was after)
    c) put in a holding room at JFK New York, and let go 2 hours later with no explanation.....
    :angry:
    d) been threatened with arrest after helping the police round up the guys who beat me up severely in Skegness in 1981... I started to have a go at one when they stopped him... (beer talking...;))

    Who are the sanctimonious gits who have voted 'No, never and not likely to be'?

    I was arrested for criminal damage after snapping off a twig thinner than my little finger, evil bastard that I am.

    Although I have never been arrested for the string of far worse crimes that I have committed.

    In my yoof I was with 2 'friends' who I didn't know well and when they nicked the contents of the till of a chinese takeaway, I scarpered with them. I'm still ashamed and I lived in fear of being arrested for a year or so afterwards.

    Still, the £20 kept me in fags for a while:blush:

    Is that against the law in China?

    Your wife doesn't read this does she?
     
  14. Yep, I was arrested in November 2004. I was accused of attacking a fellow cyclist from behind and beating him unconscious. The reality was that he attacked me and I managed to get the better of him. To save face he made up the 'attacked from behind' nonsense.
    It went to court 10 months later.
    Case dismissed, all charges against me dropped, and I didn't have to say a word because he made himself look a complete imbecile. ;)
