Drunk teenager from Grantham jumped in front of traffic

Have your say

A TEENAGER who got drunk and jumped in front of cars was given a 12 month conditional discharge by Grantham magistrates on Monday.

Justin Gray, 19, of Sixth Avenue, Grantham, admitted being drunk and disorderly on August 27.

Daniel Pietryka, prosecuting, said: “Police were called at around 1.30am to New Beacon Road, Grantham, to reports of a young man heavily in drink with a female, staggering along the pavement, jumping in front of traffic and being aggressive to passers-by.”

By the time the police attended, Gray was with his mother, who was in a distressed state.

Gray swore at police and refused to co-operate.

He then lashed out at officers, raising both arms.

Gray, who defended himself, said: “I don’t know what to say, I was drunk at the time. I remember nothing apart from waking up in a cell. I was out drinking for the Bank Holiday.”

Gray was ordered to pay £85 costs.
