“I’m sorry” was all that a Boston man was able to say in defence of his behaviour, after he was charged with being drunk and disorderly in the town centre.
Standing in Boston Magistrates’ Court, Carl Lewis said there was ‘nothing else to say’ about the offence, which saw him shout and swear at a police officer in the early house of September 15, following a night out in town.
On Wednesday, he admitted being drunk and disorderly.
Marie Stace, prosecuting, said police had been called to a fight outside Bluu nightclub in Bridge Street involving other people, but while they were there, Lewis began shouting at them.
He was asked to stop and move away several times, but when he repeatedly refused, he was arrested.
The 23-year-old, of Redstone Caravan Park, apologised for his behaviour.
He was given a conditional discharge for nine months and told to pay £85 court costs.
