Party-lover prefers jail to booze ban
A party-loving Australian has pleaded with a judge to be sent to jail rather than continue to be banned from drinking alcohol. Milo Wild, 22, was originally sentenced to three months in jail following a drunken rampage, but a judge suspended the jail term on the condition that Wild refrain from all drinking for two years. Seven months into the alcohol ban, Wild asked magistrate John O’Neill to let him serve the prison term, saying that he found it unbearable to stay at home while his friends caroused at bars. O’Neill called Wild’s request “extraordinary,” adding, “There is nothing to do in Darwin for a strong, healthy young man except to drink?”

During a fiery confrontation, Guadalupe berated her 43-year-old daughter for acting like an “oversexed teenager.”
