My understanding of courtroom stuff is limited to when Judge Judy says ‘judgement for the plaintiff in the amount of $500’ so this story is as surprising to me as it might be to anyone else who’s only access to law stuff is re-runs of Law & Order: SVU. On a recent flight from Barcelona to the US, Ralph Lauren’s niece Jenny Lauren got her mile-high swerve on which turned into getting her rage on. However, according to The Daily Mail, trying to sneak a copy of SkyMall into her purse as she exited the cabin was the least of her problems:
Jenny Lauren, 41, is accused of breaching the peace on board a transatlantic Delta Air Lines flight, which had to be diverted to Shannon Airport in the west of Ireland yesterday afternoon.
Dressed in a smart black dress, coat and boots, the New York-based jewellery designer wept before the hearing and then clutched her hands as she appeared before Killaloe District Court.
The unusual sitting was held in the downstairs function room of the Brian Boru pub – named after the ancient High King of Ireland – as there is no dedicated courthouse in the area.
Ms Lauren sat only feet away from Guinness and Heineken taps and under switched off disco lights as her name was called out in the licenced premises which was not in operation today.
When did Ireland get so touchy about being a drunk-ass mess? I just naturally assumed that when one purchased an Irish plane ticket, it came with TSA-approved bottles of whiskey and a voucher for 1 in-flight fist-fight. But maybe they would have let her off with a warning if Jenny hadn’t given officers some first class-level American attitude:
Officer Yvette Walsh told the court that when the jewellery designer was being detained at the airport she told officers: ‘Can you say that in English please?’
Oh, fuuuuuuuuuuudge. What were you thinking, Jenny?!? This isn’t Canada, where people cry maple syrup tears when you insult their accents. I wouldn’t go fucking around with a country who has a drink named after their most popular terrorist act.
