Other charges were struck out such as failure to produce a driver’s license and driving without reasonable consideration. Gardai were concerned that her dog Mary was sticking her head out the rear window of the car.

Judge John Coughlan asked Twink what her occupation was. She replied that she worked in the entertainment industry.

She did thank the judge for not disqualifying her from the roads, her birthday night wasn’t completely ruined.
