The man accused of leaving his baby in a car while he visited a Wellington strip club says there is more to the story and is looking forward to giving his version.
The man – whom The Dominion Post can reveal as Wayne Schwamm – will appear in Wellington District Court on Monday, charged with leaving a child under the age of 14 without reasonable supervision.
Schwamm was reluctant to comment to The Dominion Post yesterday, after his lawyer instructed him not to talk to the media.
But he said he was unhappy with the information that had already come to light and was keen to reveal what happened. "There are other circumstances that are yet to play themselves out ... But when they have all been dealt with, I look forward to telling the real reason I was there [at the strip club]."
We can't hardly wait. It sounds as though it's going to be a REALLY good story! Perhaps we was on a mission to rescue a lady of the night. Maybe he was lured there; didn't mermaids used to lure ships to rocks? Maybe he heard an advertisement for Mermaids on the radio as he was driving from Palmy to Wellington in the dark of night after arguing with his partner and fleeing with the child.
Whatever; all will be revealed next week when he appears in Court next week. If you wanted, you could always speculate on what his excuse might be ...
