Derry man who took brother's car for romatic rendezvous told PSNI passion-killers, 'I wasn't thinking with my head!'

A Derry man who let his amorous intentions get the better of him took his brother's car without permission, no licence and no insurance, and told police he hadn't been 'thinking with his head'. The Foyle PSNI shared the story on their Facebook page. It read: 'Recently Ballyarnett NPT (Neighbourhood Policing Team) detected a male who took his brothers car without his knowledge or permission. Needless to say the brother wasn't too impressed when we contacted him. The offender fully admitted the offences of taking a Motor Vehicle Without Authority, No Insurance and No Driving Licence. Following this detection Police established that the offender had received a late night phone call from his girlfriend. Then in the heat of the moment took his brothers vehicle to pick the fine lady up, get a Chinese meal and settle down for a romantic night. Unfortunately for him he did not realise that Ballyarnett NPT were on duty. Also in his state of uncontrollable emotion he forgot you require a licence, insurance and the owners permission to do so. Prior to leaving the area he told police "I wasn't thinking with my head!" #ballyarnettnpt #keepingpeoplesafe #useyourhead #inthenameoflove #coldshower
