Drunken man gives apology

A SCARBOROUGH man told magistrates “you won’t see me again” after he was sentenced for drunk and disorderly behaviour.

Kieran Jackson, 21, of Bracken Hill, admitted the charge, following an incident in Waterhouse Lane on March 11.

He also admitted failing to surrender to the court on April 5 and was subsequently arrested and taken into custody.

The court heard how police were called to the scene just after midnight and saw a man being restrained by security staff.

Jackson was said to be “thrashing around” and swearing at officers.

Catherine Turnbull, prosecuting, said: “He smelt strongly of alcohol and his speech was slurred.

“Due to his language and aggressive behaviour, the police arrested him.”

Shaun Greenan, mitigating, said: “He apologises in relation to both matters.

“On the day in question, my client had been out with friends watching football.

“He has no recollection of the night’s events.” Jackson was given a six-month conditional discharge.
