Formal.

Your Honour, my client means, he was relaxing in his local pub, then left and was ill in an ally. Next he got tired so he started to walk home when an old man purposely tripped him up with his walking stick. Then my client fell into a nearby car. After this the old man turned on the car and shouted for the police, who soon  came and arrested him without hearing his side of the story! That is all your Honour.
