The open secret is no longer secret:
The ‘celebrity’ charged with disorderly behaviour after an incident in central Auckland in December can now be named after name suppression was lifted at a court hearing this morning.
Sports broadcaster Martin Devlin, 46, was arrested on the morning of December 29 after sitting on the bonnet of his and his wife’s car on Quay Street.
I have no problem in admitting that I behaved like a right plum that morning on Quay Street. . .
I sought name suppression in an effort to try and protect my children from being identified and embarrassed by my behaviour.
Obviously the only effective way to prevent that was not to do it in the first place.
And had he not sought name suppression the whole thing would have been done and dusted the day it happened.
What he did is between him and his family, the attempt at suppression made it news.
