A drunk homeless man was arrested after shouting and swearing in a Grantham street.

Ian Welbourne Jackson-Winch, 44, of no fixed address, admitted being drunk and disorderly in Westgate on June 8.

Prosecuting, Daniel Pietryka told the court that Jackson-Winch was asked to leave a shop in Westgate at 1.30pm. He was seen lying in the road and was threatening to go back to the shop. He had a small cut on his head and a PCSO called paramedics to check him over.

Mr Pietryka said the PCSO asked Jackson-Winch to leave the area but he began shouting and swearing and did not want to calm down. He was then arrested.

Jackson-Winch, who was not represented, told the court he was homeless and had had too much to drink. “I was in the wrong,” he said.

Magistrates handed Jackson-Winch a conditional discharge for six months. He was ordered to pay criminal court costs of £150 and a victim surcharge of £15.
