Ecstasy turned to agony for Salford man Mickey Finn in the early hours of this morning. Finn,38 had been up all night celebrating Manchester United's 3-1 triumph at the Emirates last night and looking forward to a trip to Rome for the CL Final.
Mrs Finn however had other ideas. "You're not going," she told him in no uncertain terms. From which point things went rapidly downhill.
A furious Finn first threw a microwave oven out of the window, then a laptop, then some saucepans, before locking the window open and standing on the glass on the outside of the building, eighty feet above the ground, where he proceeded to dance to loud music blasting from within.
A voyeuristic crowd of onlookers oohed and aahed as Finn appeared on the verge of losing his balance, but he was eventually overpowered by police officers, tasered, given a good hiding and taken to the police station for a bit of attitude adjustment.
Mrs Finn told us:
"He only wanted to go to Rome to watch United, the bastard. If he thinks he's swanning off for three days leaving me with three kiddies and a smack dealership to cope with he can bloody well think again."
More as we get it.
