A 22-year-old has pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in a public place, after he swore at police officers as they tried to help him back home.

Callum Winch, of Winchester Road, Grantham, admitted to drunken disorder on February 6.

Prosecutor Daniel Pietryka outlined how at around 3am the defendant had been ejected from the Late Lounge in the Market Place, and was being difficult with the door staff.

Police intervened and took Winch back to his home address on Winchester Road, but he struggled to gain entry in his intoxicated state and continued to swear at officers, including using the ‘F’ word.

Representing himself in court, Winch said: “I wanted to apologise. I just had too much to drink. I’d had a bad day and I went out, but it was totally my fault.”

He added: “I have learnt my lesson.”

Winch was given a conditional discharge lasting 12 months, and must also pay prosecution costs of £85 and a £15 victim surcharge.
