University of Bath lecturer Leah Wild. See SWNS story SWDRUNK; A lecturer at a top university has quit in disgrace after slapping a policewoman in the face as she was kicked off a plane for being drunk. Mum-of-three Leah Wild, 44, who taught sociology at the University of Bath, started downing duty free Jack Daniels and brandy when her holiday flight was delayed. The Ryanair plane, carrying 184 passengers to Faro in Portugal, was stuck on the tarmac at Bristol for three hours because of a strike by French air traffic controllers. A court heard that Wild and friend Reuben Crowe, 23, became “clearly drunk” and were talking loudly and listening to loud music.
