Truck Load Of Trouble

 

Updated : Apr 25, 2009

VeryHappyPig lets his hair down when he gets away for the wife for the weekend. Even if it’s a business inspired trip. Being hundreds of miles away for Mrs VeryHappyPig gives us a kind of freedom we can not get in Ireland. We can go out and do anything with no fear of wifely ramifications.

VeryHappyPig reckons that’s is exactly what this business man was thinking when he got drunk and stole a truck, before causing thousands of pounds in damages, whilst on a trip to Singapore.

How wrong was he. VeryHappyPig bets the eventual court appearance wasn’t as bad as going home to face his wife.

“How was the trip honey?” “Well!!!”

An engineer has been fined 6,000 US dollars for stealing and crashing a truck on a night out with friends in Singapore.

Neil Arthur, 37, was walking back to his hotel in November after drinking in Orchard Towers, a building notorious for four floors of bars, when he saw a truck with its key still in the ignition, the Straits Times newspaper said.

After the driver tried to stop him, Arthur drove off and hit a signboard and a lamppost. He then reversed, crashed into another lamppost and flipped the truck over, suffering bruises and cuts, the report said.

Arthur's defence lawyer said the father of two, who could have been jailed for theft and drink driving, thought he was being pursued by unknown men.

Arthur, who was in Singapore for business meetings, expressed regret and asked to be allowed to return to his family in Scotland.

In addition to paying the fine, Arthur also had to compensate the state and the truck driver 38,000 US dollars for the damage caused and was banned from driving any vehicle in Singapore for two years, the report added.

His blood-alcohol level was found to be 1.5 times the legal limit for driving, according to the newspaper.

Court officials could not be immediately reached to confirm details of the case, which was heard Thursday.
