Police allegedly asked McKenney how he came to be in such a state and discovered a small quantity of the drug in a trouser pocket.
When he saw the drug McKenney allegedly told police he recognised it to be GHB, but emphatically denied ownership or using it.
Later in his record of interview McKenney told police he had been to a party at an apartment in Macleay Street, Potts Point, on Anzac Day eve and had danced so much that he began to overheat and had taken his pants off to continue dancing.McKenney, who has pleaded not guilty to the charge and has been on police bail, allegedly told arresting officers that it was while his pants were down that someone at the party must have put the drug into his pocket.
From now on that shall also be my defence. I was so hot dancing I had to pants myself.
