'I emailed the courts to say I couldn't make the date, and they said that was fine as long as I emailed the magistrate. I asked for his contact information but they didn't give it to me,' Bramble told the panelists.
'Technically I broke bail terms because I didn't show up... but I am going to hand myself in, I've just been instructed to seek legal advice first.'
