A 20-year-old has admitted being drunk and disorderly after being aggressive to staff outside an Ipswich nightspot.

Jake Betts, of Grove Road, Bentley, pleaded guilty to the offence when he appeared before South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court.

The incident occurred on December 12.

Prosecutor Colette Harper said a group people were outside Revolution in the Old Cattle Market at 2.10am speaking to door staff.

Betts, who was with them, lunged aggressively towards the door staff.

He was taken to the ground. When police came over and spoke to him they made numerous of attempts to persuade him to leave the area with his friend in a taxi, the court heard.

However, Betts refused to go and continued to be aggressive which led to his arrest.

Mrs Harper said Betts was previously given a caution in February for being drunk and disorderly and resisting a police officer.

Betts, who represented himself, told the court he had consumed too much alcohol on the night of his latest arrest.

District Judge Sandeep Kainth gave Betts a one-year conditional discharge and ordered him to pay £85 costs as well as £15 to the victims’ fund.
