Railton appeared before a justice of the peace and admitted to a charge of not being in proper control of a vehicle. He was issued three points on his license, bringing his point total to 12 and resulting in a loss of driving privileges for six months. He was also fined $99.

"A lot of people exercise their dogs in that manner," Railton said. "It's a joke. I'm not bothered. I knew I'd get three points. I might save myself some money not having a car."
