PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The first ever prosecution of drink-spiking in Bristol is going through the courts, councillors heard. City council night-time economy adviser Carly Heath told licensing committee members that until the launch of the campaign last year, there had never been a successful conviction for the crime, which is classed as administering poison with intent. She said that this could finally change following the arrest of a suspect during an incident. Carly told the meeting on Thursday (June 16): “On a busy Friday or Saturday night out, when the majority of incidents happen, venues can radio through to the police to say they have a positive case, and the police can attend that venue immediately and deal with that incident live as it’s happening, rather than what has traditionally happened and what happens in a lot of other cities where someone comes forward a day or two later and by then it’s too late to get the forensics needed to get a prosecution. “We’ve had 15 arrests in the last six months. Our first arrest happened within four days of our initiative starting.

.” She said they searched him and found nothing but that a test of the drink allegedly showed it contained ketamine. Carly said the police were called and made an arrest. “We are awaiting that case to make it through the judicial process to see if we can get a conviction for drink spiking,” she said. "The last five years previous to this we had over 500 incidents of drink spiking given to the police and not a single one of those people was prosecuted. “So we are really trying to change the narrative and see prosecutions happen. We are just too early in the scheme for it to have gone through the court system.” Read More Related Articles Bristol gets money to tackle sexual harassment in pubs and clubs Read More Related Articles How reports of spiking in nightclubs has created 'fear'
