Breaking news: Man has fun at bucks party
Eamon Sullivan is in hot water, according to today’s The Daily Telegraph. The Aussie swimming champion was caught hooning around the streets of Gawler, South Australia on a ride-on motorised scooter that he “borrowed” from a local pensioner, John Guppy.
It is further alleged that Sullivan wasn’t particularly good at it, because he is also said to have crashed into a nearby table and injured two people. This, despite the fact that local publican Adrian Armstrong claimed the party wasn’t intoxicated.
So what could explain the unfortunate turn of events?
A source close to The Punch informed us this morning that it was most likely boredom. The town of Gawler, 44km north of Adelaide is not exactly known for its bright lights.
“Bit of a s*&^&ole really,” said the source.
We’re not sure how helpful that information may prove to the swimming star, but you never know what will get you over the line these days.
Because while a spokesperson for Sullivan told reporters there is no evidence to suggest that he was the “party responsible” for the accident, he’s due to face a local magistrate after being reported to police for “disorderly behavior.”
Whatever the outcome, The Punch hopes Sullivan gets someone else to drive him to that particular appointment.
