All 3 will claim they are suffering from “mental stress” and will get a very minor slap on the wrist, deferred.

What a dick comment At least we know who the bellends are on the Island. This shop owner has to close due to drunken fucktards, losing their source of income and having to claim on their insurance, pushing their premium up.

Am I correct in assuming that their injuries were life threatening, i.e. they were about to bleed to death? Because apparently St Mary’s refuse to treat if not life threatening.

Absolute, 100% brainless morons. Too stupid to just go out and have a good time. Whoever is at fault, stay home, don’t drink because you obviously cannot hold your liquor!

Three people, alleged to have fallen over, warrants a ‘scene guard’, but local businesses are attacked on Ventnor shore, fires are set by same disgusting individual, and kestrels are crucified on the cliffs and the Peelers refused, at first to attend… Didn’t respond in the way local taxpayers wished, but certainly responded favourably to a certain owner of a site which had a life-threatening fire after he said they would. Poor sods! Wouldn’t be a copper for anything these days. They are the ones who are handcuffed.

I expect the shop owner will be prosecuted for having an unsafe shop window glass not up to regulation strength or thickness.

All arrested on suspicion of affray, think some comments have gone overboard on character assassination. Think we need to know was it accidental or with intent! I do feel for shop owner, they are the only innocent in this episode.

How does a shop like that make money if even when it’s door is smashed in nothing is stolen.
