MIRTH Silly arsonists’ 50-lager binge
TWO yobs downed 50 cans of lager between them before torching a woman’s car.
Timothy Randall and Christopher Cooper were said to be “bladdered” from drinking the lager and 12 litres of cider when they came across the Renault Clio.
Teesside Crown Court heard how police inquiries resulted in witnesses describing two men as having set the car alight before walking away.
Cops traced the pair and Randall, 19, said that he had been out drinking with 22-year-old Cooper all weekend.
Cooper said that he was very drunk and had only three hours’ sleep when they the pair torched the car.
Both admitted arson and breaches of suspended sentences. Randall, of Redcar, got two years’ detention and Cooper, of Loftus, 18 months’ jail.
