The court heard how police intervened when a drunk 37-year-old started throwing punches at bouncers outside a Grantham club.

Alexander Broome, of Park Road, Grantham pleaded guilty to one charge of being drunk and disorderly in a public place.

Prosecutor Shelley Wilson outlined how at about 1.55am on October 12, police were on duty in the Market Place.

The officers saw the door staff of the Late Lounge ejecting Broome who was then seen throwing punches at the door staff.

Police assisted with restraining Broome on the ground, who continued to be aggressive and had to be put into leg restraints.

Representing himself in court, Broome said he could not remember much of the incident.

He added that he suffered from anxiety.

Magistrates gave Broome a conditional discharge lasting 12 months, and ordered him to pay a victim surcharge of £15 as well as £40 towards prosecution costs.
