Transcript:
Peter Kavanagh was charged with having been drunk on the licensed premises of the Maesbangor Arms, in the occupation of Eliza Harvey.-P.C. Evan Evans said that on the 25th last month he visited the Maesbangor Arms and found the defendant lying on the kitchen floor dead drunk. He called the attention of the landlady to the defendant, and she replied that the man had not had a glass of beer in her house and that he had only just entered the house and fell down on the floor. He afterwards made inquiries and was told that the man had been turned out of the Tynllidiart Arms. Afterwards two of his friends took him home. The defendant said he was sick that day, and produced a certificate from Dr Rowland to prove what he said, The police officer did not speak to him or attempt to waken him up. By the Bench: He went to the public house to get a glass of brandy as he suffered great pain. Supt. Lloyd said the doctor had informed him that he had given the defendant some Morphia pills that day and it was possible that they might produce the effects described. P.C. Evans said he had seen the defendant, earlier in the day and he was under the influence of drink at the time. The Court was cleared, and the Bench on readmitting the public, said the evidence of the policeman was strong, but there was the doctor's certificate on the other side, and it was possible that this morphia might have the effect described upon him. The case was dismissed on payment of the costs
