Ms McMullen was pulled over in her Mercedes last year driving near Cheshire, after swerving violently.

Cops drug tested the mum-of-two as there was astrong smellof cannabis in the car.

The test revealed that she had cocaine and one of its by-products in her system and she was charged with driving under the influence.

しかしながら, she disputed in court the claim that she was swerving because of the effect of the drug.

代わりに, she offered an unusual defence for her actions.

Her defence counsel Chloe Gaffney told Stockport Magistrates Court: “The defendant has entered a guilty plea and accepts the prosecution’s case. There is just one minor dispute that being that she was swerving over the road.

She accepts one small swerve as her small dog was in the back of the vehicle and had been sick. She pointed this out to the officers when she was pulled over.

しかしながら, beyond the whacky excuse McMullen accepted the charge.

Ms Gaffney went on to explain that her client had had anextremely difficult and emotional lifeand had lost her job due to the pandemic.

She reported that Michelle had taken cocaineon and offfor the last five years as acoping mechanismand that this use had increased when she was laid off.

McMullen was ordered to seek help for her addiction issues and disqualified from driving for almost two years.

Her legal team had argued that unpaid work was not a viable punishment as it now took her over four hours to take her kids to school, as she had not driven since being arrested.
