A MAN who obstructed police officers while drunk in a Wrexham taxi rank has been o rdered to pay more than £200.

Mark Melville Williams, 32, of Gresford Way, Wrexham, admitted being drunk and disorderly on Brook Street on May 31.

He also admitted obstructing police officers carrying out their duties on the same evening.

Justin Espie, prosecuting, told Wrexham Magistrates Court Williams had made it difficult for officers to get him into their car after he was arrested for being drunk and disorderly.

Euros Jones, defending, said Williams admitted he had a problem with drink and had been drinking while out celebrating his daughter’s birthday.

Mr Jones said: “He thought he could have a couple of drinks – that was clearly not the case.”

He added that Williams had no recollection of his actions on the evening.

Williams was fined £37 for being drunk and disorderly and £73 for obstructing the officers.

He was also ordered to pay a £20 victim surcharge and £85 costs, a combined total of £215.

Magistrates’ chairman Rowland Humphries told Willilams: “It is somewhat disappointing that you relapsed into a situation where drink was involved.”
