Man admits being drunk and disorderly

A ‘belligerent’ 20-year-old has racked up his fifth conviction for being drunk and disorderly.

Jack Dean, of Queens Road, Felixstowe, pleaded guilty to the offence when he appeared before South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court.

Prosecutor Ian Allen said the incident happened at around 11.30pm on January 6.

Police received a report about the conduct of young men in the area of Bent Hill, Felixstowe.

They found three males in Hamilton Gardens, one of whom was Dean.

The court was told Dean was known to one of the officers.

Mr Allen said Dean and another male were rude and belligerent.

Dean was very drunk and had an injury to his right eye and cheek as if he had been punched in the face.

However, he was not prepared to tell police how it happened and swore at officers when asked about it.

Dean became aggressive to one of the officers and at one point threatened to hit him.

The court heard the group was advised to continue on their way, but a few minutes later they returned and made a disturbance.

One of the group swore loudly towards police, who pursued him.

After the male was detained Dean intervened and was arrested.

Mr Allen said it was Dean’s firth conviction for being drunk and disorderly.

Dean, representing himself, said: “There’s no real excuse for what I did. I know it was wrong. I can only apologise for it.

“I’m trying to make a change.”

District Judge Sally Fudge fined Dean £150 and ordered him to pay £85 costs as well as £20 to the victims’ fund.
