Drunk and disorderly
A DRINK out with friends turned into trouble after a man was removed from a pub for being drunk and disorderly.
Pleading guilty to being drunk and disorderly in a public place, John Matthew Hutchinson, 25, of Riverside, Driffield, appeared at magistrates court on Wednesday 3 October.
Hutchinson was at the Brunswick Hotel, Manor Street, Bridlington, on Thursday 20 September and had consumed six to seven pints.
Sally Robinson, prosecution solicitor, said: “Police go to Brunswick Hotel on reports of a fight but there is no fight, the landlady simply wants Mr Hutchinson removing from the premises as he is drunk.”
In mitigation for himself Hutchinson said: “I was sat in the pub where I was at and having a laugh and joke with my friends.
“All of a sudden these people came and attacked me. I tried to fight them off.”
Daniel Curtis, district judge, said: “Well your record indicates to me that you are a fairly persistent nuisance. What are you going to do to make sure that you don’t return to court?”
Hutchinson told D J Curtis he was receiving counselling for his drinking.
Hutchinson was given a £50 fine with £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
D J Curtis said: “You now owe the court a large amount of money that is all to do with your drinking.
“Hopefully we won’t see you in the future.”
