Good point. It may have been that those who breached the peace were not willing to ask him to delete the image but to make a stink and then actually breach the peaceI'm in two minds about this story.
If it was me and I was feeling unwell. I wouldn't want some guy taking a picture of me at my worse. Where is the common sense in saying "come on mate, please delete that picture.'
But I'm sure the police could have handled the dispute much better. I don't think it should of gone to court, with the guy getting fined and in the news over it. He sound genuine.
It is rather sanctimonious to say that she was fair game just because she was drunk.
