Grantham court: Man threw shirt to floor

Have your say

Police arrested a man who urinated in the street after he had already been warned by officers for taking off his shirt and acting aggressively.

Charles Smith of Kinoulton Court in Grantham admitted a public order offence following the incident in Grantham town centre in the early hours of April 5.

Daniel Pietryka, prosecuting, told the court Smith was seen on CCTV “acting in an aggressive and agitated manner”. He was seen to remove his shirt and throw it on the floor as he appeared to be in a disagreement with someone outside the Late Lounge in Grantham Market Place.

Smith, 28, was advised to leave the area by police officers. However, he only got as far as Westgate before officers witnessed him stop and begin urinating in the street, at which point he was arrested.

Smith, defending himself, said he had no comment to make on the incident.

Smith was fined £35 and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a surcharge of £20.
