A MAN who was abusive to police after being asked to leave his grandfather’s home has been slapped with a court fine.
Police were called to Dunstanburgh Court, Jarrow, at 2.39am on February 6 after reports Denny Marshall was being disruptive.
He agreed to leave the property when asked by officers, but when police left the scene soon after he became abusive towards them.
Paul Anderson, prosecuting, said: “He swore at police and was warned about his language, but continued to be abusive and was arrested.”
The 22-year-old, of Wharton Street, South Shields, didn’t turn up for the hearing at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court.
The charge of being drunk and disorderly in a public place was found proved in his absence.
Marshall was fined £55 and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £20.
