Grantham court: Drunken man arrested after ‘paedophile’ rant at Asda

Have your say

A foul-mouthed tirade outside Grantham Asda led to a man being arrested and pleading guilty to a charge of drunk and disorderly behaviour.

Police were called to the store at 4am on May 3 to reports of a drunken man refusing to leave. Grantham magistrates were told that man was Dean Frazier, 48, of Princess Drive in Grantham.

Daniel Pietryka, prosecuting, said: “When the police got there they noticed the defendant was clearly drunk.

“He was verbally abusive to officers, calling various persons “w***ers” and saying people in parts of government and various parts of the establishment are paedophiles.”

He was then arrested.

Frazier, representing himself, told magistrates: “First of all I would like to apologise to the court.

“I had just split up from my wife of 16 years and had just started on some new medication.

“I went out to have a drink to try to clear my head but clearly had far too much to drink and all I can do is apologise.

“It’s not my character. I don’t normally drink.”

Magistrates gave Frazier a six-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a £15 surcharge.
