I don’t think it’s any stretch of the imagination to say that sometimes bachelor parties spiral out of control. But normally when they spiral out of control, you have to get an understanding going between all parties involved that essentially says, “This will never get to our girlfriends.” But when you do something so atrocious and belligerant that you end up getting arrested? Well, that’s when people start asking, “Wait, what the hell happened?”
In the case of these two gentleman in the Glasgow airport, they probably made a few moves that they’d like to take back. Their story? Well, it’s a litttttttle irresponsible.
Louis Dodds and Mark Harkness were about to jet off to Alicante when they thought it would be funny to tell other passengers there were explosives on board.
Both of them were so drunk they passed out on the floor at Glasgow Airport in June this year.
Police responded to the bomb threat and found Dodds, 28, and Harkness, 30, asleep.
They were arrested and taken to a police station, but both of them had had so much to drink they could not be charged until they sobered up.
Now, I’m no expert, but I’m pretty sure that there are two surefire ways to get kicked off a plane: being blackout drunk and uttering the word “bomb.” And while I respect coming into a bachelor party weekend hot, I’m struggling to figure out where they thought it would be a good idea to get so drunk that they both pass out at the airport before their flight. There’s no word on whether or not they actually made it to the party itself, but they did incur £750 in fines – “£250 for being drunk in the airport and £500 for the bomb threat.”
Honestly, though, that’s probably cheaper than what I would’ve lost in Vegas during the bachelor party I had to miss a few years back. See, there’s silver linings all around us. .
