ABUSE aimed at staff at Grantham train station landed an Essex man in court.
Paul Mason, of Bastable Avenue, Barking, Essex, told the court he was very sorry.
He said: “My family worked on the railway for years here in Grantham. I want to apologise to the bloke I had a row with but I can’t until after the case has been dealt with.”
Mason, 52, was seen “staggering around, shouting and causing a disturbance” at the station on February 2.
Jill Derby, prosecuting, said Mason “became threatening in his manner”.
He eventually left the station before returning and banging on an office door demanding a refund while using foul language.
Police then arrived and Mason was arrested.
Mason admitted a public order offence and was given a six-month conditional discharge. He must pay £85 costs.
