Taylor guilty of assault

shannontaylorOk, it was cheap not to put Shannon ahead of Taylor in the title.

    Friend of mine got 20 hours of community service for pinching a ladies “arse” in Tesco’s, once.

    He also once exposed himself inm ASDA one evening, near that hot chicken “thing” but they chose not to press charges.

    “Anything goes in ASDA, mate!” he said over a quiet beer one evening.
