Magistrate denies 'Leary from buying or even holding a beer for 12 months.'


Recently the campaign expenditures for alcohol of Elk Grove city council member Mike Leary were a topic of discussion on Elk Grove Online. 'Leary likes liquor' (reg. required.) discussed the campaign's large and frequent expenditures for liquor.

Curious, we did a Wikio search for Mike Leary and found a story titled 'Cost of drowning sorrows' from the Daily News in South Africa.

The story reads:
SYDNEY: An Australian man convicted of his seventh drunken-driving charge was spending about A$1 000 (R7 350) a week on beer - enough to buy more than 2 500 small bottles a month, a newspaper reported this week.

The heartbroken construction worker began drowning his sorrows after splitting with his partner five years ago, the Northern Territory News said, quoting his defence lawyer as telling a court in Australia's remote, tropical north.

The magistrate declined to jail the father of four, Michael Leary, noting he had quit drinking since his latest arrest, but he banned Leary from buying or even holding a beer for 12 months. The magistrate also poked fun at Leary's favourite beer, Melbourne Bitter, in a part of the country where drinkers can be as loyal to beer brands as they are to football teams.

"(That is) poor judgment on two counts there - drinking that much and drinking Melbourne Bitter,'' magistrate Vince Luppino was quoted as saying.

Just want to post this so as not to cause any confusion between our Mike Leary and their Mike Leary.
