(Newser) – Note to Laura Hall: Once you’ve been banned from every bar in the United Kingdom, it’s probably not a good idea to drunkenly yell at a police officer that you “want to go to the f****** offie to buy some beer!” But that is what Hall did early Sunday, after being caught drinking in public and shouting in the street, and was subsequently arrested and fined almost $300.

Hall, who was slapped with the drinking ban last month after a series of alcohol-related offenses, admitted to breaching the order, the Mirror reports. In a supremely obvious statement in court, her lawyer said Hall has a “considerable problem” with alcohol, but insisted she “does not offend when she is not intoxicated,” the BBC reports.
