    I won’t say too much to affect the investigation, as well as it being sub juice, but what the hell was he doing climbing a fence at night near the river ???? Normally baijiu would induce these funny antics, I suppose !

    Not sub juice, sub judice !! Spellcheck ! Mind you juice could have been the cause !

    I did smile when I saw ‘juice’. I thought you had done it deliberately!
