Craig Lord was working on his home when he heard a commotion coming from the road.
He posted on his Facebook a description of what happened.
Well…. I might have a new scar.
I was working on my house and heard a car up the road doing mad wheel spins in the rain. I watched it rip past my place, lose control, sideswipe my neighbours parked car and drive off. The car he hit is a write-off and I feel for her because she works in Panmure.
So I go for a walk knocking on neighbourhood doors to find where it came from before I ring the police – and coincidentally as I was knocking on his door he comes running up the driveway.
He was drunk and/or heavy on drugs and had come running from his wreck around the corner. (Which I didn’t know he had wrecked at the time)
I asked if it was his car. He responded with a swing.
Anyway, I wasn’t going to let that happen again so I took him down – hard. Let’s just say the ratio of hits was in my favour 😎
What I didn’t know was the wife happened to be behind me at that exact time the ‘scuffle’ started.
She went into freak mode calling for help.
My boy arrived milliseconds after, and then two more neighbours arrived.
The guy was raging. I dunno if it was just booze or if he was also drugged up. Four of us struggled to hold him down while we waited for the police.
We helped them get the cuffs on him, and eventually he was taken away. It took some work.
The asshole could’ve killed someone, but thankfully he only destroyed two cars and a power pole.
One drunk driver down. And I’m not upset about it.
So I have a new battle scar which is likely to be permanent, along with bruised ribs and scratches. My boy has a some bruises and tender ribs but I’m proud as hell of him and now he has better stories for work.
It’s a Harry Potter scar!
The wife wants us to go to A&E but I’ve been protesting cause of the rugby. But the ambo is taking us both for a ride. I’m going to miss the final 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Go the BLUES!
Lord provided an update this morning:
Got home at 2:30 this morning. Had a siesta, now enjoying a morning coffee. Thanks everyone for your well wishes, boy and I have bruised ribs and my head has been superglued.
Doc said no shower till Monday so I’m lobbying the wife about sponge baths.
