Drunken young man is fined

COURT: Court Case
COURT: Court Case

A BOOZY man refused warnings before he was arrested for being drunk and disorderly in Matlock.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Monday, May 13, how Jamie Roper, 21, of Cromford Road, Wirksworth, was spotted allegedly urinating in the street and was asked to move on by police before he became disorderly outside a pub.

Becky Mahon, prosecuting, said Roper was twice advised to move on by officers before the Crown pub said a drunken man had become aggressive and Roper was found shouting and being disorderly outside the pub.

Felicity Clarke, defending, said Roper had only been involved in a slight disturbance.

Roper, who had been bound over to keep the peace on a separate matter, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly and magistrates fined him £34 and ordered him to pay £85 costs, a £20 victim surcharge and £50 for breaching his peace order.
