Woman who won model photoshoot was kicked out in 10 minutes for being drunk
A woman who won a spot on a professional modeling session was kicked out and arrested within 10 minutes of getting drunk.
Amy Enright, 25, had received vouchers to attend a photography studio on August 5 in Manchester, but became so nervous and “overwhelmed” that she spilled vodka in the locker room while getting ready.
She was so intoxicated that a stylist was unable to style her hair and make up, she hammered her words and found it difficult to sit down to take pictures.
The workers called the police because they were concerned for the welfare of a child in her care.
Prosecutor Peter Conoray said: “When she arrived at 10:20 am, she initially appeared to be fine and did not smell of alcohol or appear to be intoxicated. But from the moment she sat down to get ready for the shoot, she demanded to come in and out of the private locker room.
“The studio attendant was starting to have trouble combing her hair because the accused was getting more and more intoxicated, flouting his words and struggling to stand up straight.
“She was in the studio for about 10 minutes and at this point she was asked to leave due to her behavior.
“A colleague took the accused and the child out and a few minutes later she came back because she had forgotten some of her things. The workers contacted the police because they were concerned for the child’s well-being.
When the officers arrived, Enright looked “unsteady and confused” and could barely put together a sentence.
“She first said her last drink was at 1am, but officers weren’t convinced and she was asked again when she was last drinking and at this point she said around 6 or 7 in the morning. Officers searched his bag and found half a bottle of vodka, ”added Mr. Conoray.
An unnamed child she was caring for at the time was taken to relatives.
Enright, who lives with her parents in Sale near Altrincham, sobbed in Manchester Magistrates’ Court as she admitted to being drunk while looking after a child and was fined £ 120.
Her lawyer said she “rarely leaves the house” due to a state of anxiety, said Enright was not an alcoholic.
In mitigation, defense attorney Karl Benson said: “She accepts that she had difficulty speaking to the officer and this may be in part due to intoxication and social anxiety. .
“The defendant is not an alcoholic and does not drink every day, but she sometimes drinks with her parents at home.
“Drinking on this occasion was due to the fact that she didn’t feel able to go out just to have her picture taken in a studio. She is very introverted and has no friends and does not go out and she made a mistake while drinking alcohol.
“She is eager to get help with her difficulties. She has social anxiety disorder and extreme anxiety and panic attacks and is a very vulnerable young woman.
“She has a lot of remorse and I don’t think this lady ever wants to come back to court.
“She’s so ashamed of what she’s done and knows she’s made a very big mistake and won’t repeat it.”
Enright was also ordered to pay £ 119 in fees and surcharges.
Justice of the Peace Larry Collier told him, “This was a relatively serious offense. The police described you as being very unsteady on your feet and confused and smelling of alcohol, which told us that you were drunk.
“I’m not going to go into a conference, but you have a duty of care when you’re with a child and you’ve failed in that duty.”
