TWO boozed up men are counting the cost of their drunken actions today after being landed with £25 fines.
Felixstowe men Stewart Hodge, 19, of Glemsford Close, and Richard Moore, 24, of Grange Road, appeared before magistrates and admitted being drunk and disorderly on September 4.
Police were called to the Bodrum Grill in the town's Undercliff Road West where they saw the drunken pair, said Andrea Reynolds prosecuting at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court.
Moore was spotted shouting towards those in the takeaway with his shirt off.

Moore claimed he had been assaulted and continued to swear in the direction of the eaterie.
Representing himself he said: "I did get assaulted I was pushed by the manager of the shop that night." But he added: "I was arguing and I was pretty out of order."
Meanwhile there was an altercation between Hodge and the police officer.
"He was doing comical gestures with his hands and generally being rather childish and aggressive towards the officer," said Ms Reynolds.
Despite warnings the court heard Hodge tried to walk back in the direction of the grill.
Representing himself he told the court: "I felt manhandled by police. I didn't realise I was being abusive."
He said he walked back towards the Bodrum Grill because he lived in that part of the town.
Bench chairwoman Kate Redmond fined them £25 each and ordered them to pay an additional £25 each towards prosecution costs.
