Labour Politician Helen Clark has appeared in court after being arrested for drunk and disorderly behaviour:
… Labour MP accused of being drunk and disorderly in a hotel told police they were ‘pigs’ when she was arrested, a court heard today.
Helen Clark, 54, denies using threatening words and behaviour and being drunk and disorderly in the Great Northern Hotel …
Then she allegedly said to officers: ‘I remember in the Seventies when police were referred to as pigs. That’s what you all are, pigs.
‘Look everyone, I’m being arrested by pigs.’ …
Bar staff had noted that her speech was slurred and had refused to serve her any more alcohol.
Miss Allison said Clark had responded with abuse.
The court was told that Clark had said: ‘Why am I being treated like this? Why am I treated like a ****? I have been humiliated.’
She had added: ‘Who is the bitch giving orders… you, you, calling me drunk?’
Miss Allison said attempts to calm Clark had failed.
Clark had told a member of the wholesale staff: ‘Don’t patronise me… **** off.’
