A MAN has been fined for being drunk and disorderly in Scarborough town centre.

James Davison, 32, of Grimsby, admitted the charge during a hearing at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court.

The incident happened on Saturday at around 9pm in Westborough.

Kathryn Reeve, prosecuting, told the court that Davison was well in drink and when he was given a notice to leave the area by police, he swore and became aggressive and argumentative.

Ian Brickman, mitigating, said that his client had come to Scarborough to stay with a friend and had been drinking on the day in question.

He added that initially he had tried to be a “peacemaker” between a female and a police officer who were having words.

Mr Brickman said: “He is not familiar with Scarborough and wasn’t sure which way to go. But he accepts he was abusive in his drunken state.”

Davison was fined £80 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
