Grantham court: Drunken man walked into oncoming traffic

Have your say

A 21-year-old said he would never drink again after he walked into on-coming traffic and head-butted car windows.

Anthony Patrick Green, of Woodlands Drive, Grantham, admitted being drunk and disorderly in a public place on February 2.

Prosecutor Marie Stace told the court that police received a report of a person walking into oncoming traffic in Harlaxton Road where he had headbutted the windows and had punched the glass in the kiosk window at the nearby Esso garage.

Miss Stace told the court that police found Green on the garage forecourt just after 7pm where he was very drunk, completely incomprehensible and wearing only one shoe.

He could not stay still or keep his balance. He was handcuffed while other officers arrived.

He was later arrested for being drunk and disorderly and put in a cell. Later, police had to call an ambulance because he was so ill.

Green, who was not represented, told the court: “It was unacceptable. I will not be drinking again. It won’t happen again.”

Magistrates ordered a higher fine of £250 because Green was already on a conditional discharge.

He was ordered to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £25.
