Killing my ex husband.

They'd assume the police had made a mistake. I am known for being a rule follower.

Drunk and disorderly behaviour

Losing my rag over injustice or being overcharged for something. Tight fisted AND quite feisty.

Murder of ex, pleading temporary insanity Grin

Non violent direct action - or possibly saying that men can't become women

IamPickleRick · 12/09/2020 19:46

Punching someone for chewing with their mouth open.

Decking a copper

Shoplifting shoes. Lots and lots and lots of shoes.

pepperwood · 12/09/2020 19:52

Drunk and disorderly probably or some direct action/arguing with police.

One has already happened and I've been threatened with the other.

GreeboIsMySpiritAnimal · 12/09/2020 20:01

They'd assume I was taking the rap for something my mother had done.

Babyroobs · 12/09/2020 20:07

Road rage .

Letmegetthisrightasawoman · 12/09/2020 20:10

Before I quit driving probably driving without due care and control. Now probably for getting involved in an argument.

danascully96 · 12/09/2020 20:10

Losing myself in rage over someone who hurt a child, animal, etc.

SandysMam · 12/09/2020 20:15

Indecent exposure Grin

Igmum · 12/09/2020 20:18

I'd like to say for peacefully and heroically demonstrating against a terrible injustice or being an international assassin but they know me so mistaken identity

HeronLanyon · 12/09/2020 20:20

Animal welfare activism
Environmental activism
Maybe taking it too far on a demo - not criminal damage but kind of chaining self somewhere or refusing to be kettled etc.
As I’m at the criminal bar they’d first think god god why wasn’t she more careful.

Mumdiva99 · 12/09/2020 20:24

Queue rage.....if someone pushes in a long queue I don't take it well! Madame Taussauds nearly finished me off a few years ago.....actually that wasn't even people pushing in. It was just the people behind pushing.....i feel my blood boiling already.....

SecretNutellaFix · 12/09/2020 20:30

Breaking a limb of someone who touched me after I'd told them not to.

thesoundofthepolice · 12/09/2020 20:32

Road rage or breach of the peace 😬

I think they're all surprised it hasn't happened already if I'm honest!
