ABERAVON BOROUGH POLICE COURT. FRIDAY. TBefore the Mayoi (Councillor H. Wood) and Mr. H. Walsh."] A DRUNKEN COUPLE GET THEIR DESERTS — Wm. Willoughby and Julia his wife, described as of no fixed abode, got violently drunk in Water-street on the night of the 27th July. so much so that the services of several constables were requisitioned to maintain order. The Wil- loughbys' were merely tarrying awhile in the ancient borough on thf-ir pilgrimage through South Wales, when, no other attractions offering, they got beastly drunk, and at stop tap they went out into the night, and, in police court parlance, "created a great disturbance." Mrs. Willoughby was frantic with drink, eo acting- sergeant told their worships, and it was whilst endeavouring to pacify her uproarious conduct that the male defendant "chimed" in with his little arguments. H« set about the police in quite a bu-iness-like manner, kicking on th« side of the he id. He was finally overpowered by numbers, and a civilian named Mr. C. J. Shenton knelt npon his manly chest while the process of handcuffing was goi:.g on. Wil- loughby appeared before the Bench in a very meek manner, and trembled violently during the recital of the facts which led to his arrest.—The Chairman, in passing sentence of 21 days' hard labour on the male defendant, said that, the police and the pnblio mu-t be protected from such ruffians. The female defendant would also be sent down for 7 hard." Mr. Shenton was complimented by the Bench for assisting the police in the manner he had done.
