"Could not give any account of himself" - Drunk on a train -1872

In know people who have been in a similar situation...really I do:

'DRUNK IN A RAILWAY TRAIN' - Richard Shaw, turner, Leeds, was charged with being drunk at the Midland Station. Mr Curtis stated that the prisoner was found drunk in a train on its arrival at the station, on Saturday evening. He had no ticket, and was so drunk that he could not give any account of himself, and was locked up. His ticket was afterwards found in the carriage - Fined 10s and costs, or 14 days.[1]
