Guy Pelly, Prince William's Friend, Tells Cops, "I Don't Want To" When Asked To Take Breath Test
Guy Pelly is everything a pink-cheeked party promoting friend of the young Royals should be.
So whilst one must be censorious of the fact that he has been driving his vehicle around the streets of London while allegedly over the legal alcohol limit, let us at least take our hats off to the unusual line he gave the policeman who stopped him and asked for a breath sample.
Pelly refused to blow into the breathalyzer, and when asked why he would not, but replied, "I don't want to."
That, my friends, is the type of confidence you can only get from a British public school education.
Pelly was subsequently arrested for failing to provide a roadside breath sample and taken to Belgravia Police Station where he was found to be over the limit, Westminster Magistrates' Court heard today, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
Police recorded the proportion of alcohol in Mr Pelly's breath was 52 microgrammes in 100 millilitres of breath - significantly above the legal limit of 35.
Giving evidence, PC Geoff Parker told the court he stopped Pelly at around 1am on May 28 last year.
'When I asked him to take the roadside breath test he replied: "I don't want to".
This is not the first time he has been in trouble for motoring offences. In 2012 he was busted doing 129mph on a dual carriageway in his sports car.
He was also responsible for organizing William’s stag do, drunkenly stripping in front of Charles at a polo match in 2007, and at the infamous fancy dress party where Harry appeared dressed as a Nazi, Pelly was dressed up as the Queen.
So, all in all, rather a good egg.
