Police were unable to give a factory employee a dispersal notice because he was too drunk to give his details.

Banayot Hyremi, 32, of Gladstone Terrace, Grantham, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in Grantham Market Place on New Year’s Day.

At about 12.40am police noticed the defendant causing problems outside the Late Lounge, detailed prosecutor Shelley Wilson.

Hyremi was blocking the doorway and was drunk and acting aggressively.

Officers led him to one side, and he rejected their advice to go home so they tried to issue a dispersal notice.

However they were unable to do so as Hyremi was too intoxicated to give his address, and started swearing and sticking his middle finger up at them. He was arrested and had to be restrained before sobering up at the police station.

Magistrates gave Hyremi a conditional discharge for four months, and he must pay prosecution costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £15.
