A Clacton man who verbally abused police, security staff, and a woman while on a drunken night out in Felixstowe is paying the price today.
David Turner, of Hayes Road, pleaded guilty at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court to being drunk and disorderly on October 25.
Prosecutor Colette Harper said the incident occurred at The Grand nightclub in Bent Hill in the early hours of the morning.
Turner became aggressive towards a female in the smoking area.
He was ejected by door staff and began shouting and swearing at them.
Magistrates heard the 28-year-old also swore at a police officer when they became involved.
As he was being pulled away from the club he became animated and aggressive, said Mrs Harper.

Turner was subsequently handcuffed and arrested, but still abused police when he was put into a van, and also in custody.
The court was told Turner had been given a curfew by Chelmsford Crown Court in April after failing to comply with a community order.
Turner, representing himself, said: “I’m very sorry for my behaviour. I’m not proud of anything that happened that night. I apologise to anyone who was insulted or I was rude to, or horrible to.
“I’m very sorry for what I did.”
Magistrates fined Turner £85 and ordered him to pay £85 costs.
He was also told he must pay a £150 criminal courts charge and £20 to the victims’ fund.
