Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Tuesday, January 3, how Christian Pashley, 35 of Wood Avenue, Creswell, had consumed a bottle of vodka and was rambling and abusive and was kicking out when police arrived at the station.

Prosecuting solicitor Becky Allsop said: “The ambulance service was called to Creswell train station and were trying to deal with a heavily intoxicated male but he was not allowing the ambulance service to help him and they were concerned he would be hit by a passing vehicle.

“When police arrived Pashley was drunk and he said he had had a bottle of vodka and his speech was slurred and he was rambling and abusive and kicking out so he was arrested.”
