A 36-year-old currently being held at Lincoln prison for a seperate charge, pleaded guilty via videolink to being drunk and disorderly, breaching a restraining order, and stealing aftershave from Grantham’s branch of Boots.

Prosecutor Tracey Ross told the court how on April 21 police were called to a Cecil Street address to reports of a domestic incident.

On arrival they found Merek Wrobel swaying in the middle of the road, and his ex-partner told the officers that he had come round at her request to see their children despite having a restraining order against him.

Wrobel had been looking after the children but had been drinking a few shots of vodka.

Defending, Giles Tyas said that Wrobel was receiving ‘confusing signals’ from his former partner, who in contradiction to the restraining order often asked him over to look after the children and had also written to him in prison saying that she doesn’t want the order any more.

Regarding the other matter of theft, Miss Ross explained that a week after this breach Wrobel stole a tester bottle of aftershave, valued at £61.50, from Boots on the High Street.

Mr Tyas said this crime was committed on impulse and the aftershave was intended to be kept for himself not sold on for profit.

As Wrobel was already in custody, Grantham magistrates added one day imprisonment for these offences.
