London, July 11 : Michelle Palmer, the British woman languishing in a Dubai jail after being arrested for having 'unmarried' sex on Jumeirah beach, has a reputation for jokingly groping men and women while high on booze.
A former flatmate of the publishing assistant reveals that Ms Palmer often got 'wild' when she'd had too much to drink.
"When she got drunk she got a bit wild. And she got drunk quite a lot. She would be over-friendly, grabbing people inappropriately," The Sun quoted the source, as saying.
"She would even grab hold of women's boobs.
"She was always talking about sex and guys she had been with. She was vulgar about it. I'm not shocked she had sex with a stranger but I'm surprised she was stupid enough to get caught."
Ms Palmer is currently facing a term of six years in jail after her beach romp with Vince, the man she met at a party.
The two were caught having sex on the beach by a policeman who first ticked them off, but was then forced to arrest them after catching them at it again.
As sex outside marriage is considered an offence in Dubai, Palmer was charged with it and with indecent behaviour in public, being drunk in public, and assaulting a police officer.
Reports also suggest that Ms Palmer and Vince hastily tied the knot after they were arrested in a bid to reduce their sentence.
