LOUISA WISE, of Remenham, was charged with being drunk and disorderly in Duke Street, Henley. Pc Loder deposed that at about 11pm he saw the defendant and several other people coming from the Queen’s Head. The defendant was having words with her husband and as they were using bad language and creating a disturbance, a witness tried to persuade them to go home. The husband went but Wise remained, struck at him with her hat and knocked his helmet off. As she still refused to go away, she was taken into custody. Wise, who pleaded guilty, was fined 10s.
