British actress Honeysuckle Weeks had no choice but to drink and drive, she insisted. The reason? Because after she’d had too much to drink, she feared she would be coerced into a round of group sex, she added.

That is perhaps a good reason to leave, but not necessarily a reason to drive while drunk. Don’t they have Uber in England?

Weeks, 43, is a former child star and this is not her first brush with trouble. Back in 2015, she was caught speeding with a suspended license, with her 5-year-old son in the back

This time, police said she was more than twice the legal limit when they pulled her over.”

“The defendant was driving her vehicle in Arundel when she was seen reversing into a parked car on the street,” said prosecuting attorney Matthew Howell, via The Daily Mail. “The defendant drove off from the scene before returning 15 seconds later. The vehicle was stopped and the police officer realized the driver was drunk.”

Weeks told the magistrate she had her reasons for trying to escape.

“I was expecting to stay the night in a friend’s house in Arundel but the man in question invited his lover to the property and I was in danger of being coerced into sexual actions with them which I found extremely unwelcome,” she said.

On the bright side for Weeks, she avoided jail — but has had her license suspended for 20 months, or all the way to April 2024, if she takes a drunk-driving awareness course.
