Binge drinkers too p*ssed to nick car

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PAIR of bungling drunken youths tried to steal a car to get home in, af­ter a night out where they downed 42 PINTS.

Ian Manser, 22, and 21-year-old Carl James didn’t want to wait three hours for the next morn­ing bus to Cul­lomp­ton, Devon, af­ter a booze-up in Ex­eter, 20 miles away.

So they tried to nick a mo­tor from a car hire busi­ness on an in­dus­trial es­tate in Ex­eter.

But the men were so sloshed they fell and cut them­selves on a bro­ken win­dow and needed hospi­tal treat­ment.

The pair later sobered up in A&E be­fore hand­ing them­selves in to po­lice.

The two men, from Cul­lomp­ton, ad­mit­ted bur­glary and were given com­mu­nity or­ders at Ex­eter Mag­is­trates’ Court.
