SWEARING at police who were called to his own home has cost a Boston man £260.

Jacek Rostek was said to have ‘clenched his fist and gritted his teeth’ at officers during the incident on August 9.

On Wednesday, the 39-year-old admitted being drunk and disorderly when he appeared before Boston magistrates.

Prosecutor Edward Johnson said police attended an address at Jubilee Avenue, Boston, at around 8.05pm, where Rostek was involved in a ‘domestic incident’.

Describing the defendant, Mr Johnson said: “He was unsteady on his feet, his eyes were glazed and he smelt of liquor.

“He was being abusive towards an officer.”

After calming the situation down, police told Rostek to spend the evening with friends to allow the situation to calm down.

However, Rostek returned to the property, as did police 15 minutes later.

Mr Johnson said the defendant continued to swear at officers, adding: “The officer said he clenched his fist and gritted his teeth.

“He began waving his arms.”

Defending himself, landworker Rostek – who pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly – spoke through a Polish interpretor.

He admitted he could only remember parts of the evening, adding: “I’d like to say that what I did was bad.

“I want to apologise for everything.”

He was fined £160 and ordered to pay £85 costs and the £15 victim surcharge.
