‘I kissed mouse goodbye’ – 02 Mar 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

He says he was kissing the mouse goodbye. He says he didn”t take the mouse from the top of a woman. He says it went like this;

He said she came to him with tears pouring down her cheeks, worried about her dying pet.

“She held it out by its tail. I took it from her, kissed it, and said ‘goodbye little mousie, see you in heaven’,” said Rowles.

Unfortunately for him it really went like this;

Nibbles’ owner told police she was walking her young son to school with the mouse nestled in her top when a group of drunk men confronted her in a “barbaric” attack.

Rowles appeared in the North Shore District Court last week facing charges of indecent assault, offensive behaviour and cruelty to an animal over the incident, which occurred as the couple was moving out of their Devonport home.

Hmmm…also Rowles has been charged with operating a vessel in a manner causing unnecessary danger or risk after the family launch sank off Waiheke last Anzac Day. His kids drowned when the boat he had been drinking on all night sank as they motored off.
