A MAN was arrested after he was seen walking down a town centre street wearing see-through tights and a bra.
Lee Anthony Jones appeared at a bank holiday hearing of Flintshire Magistrates’ Court yesterday where he admitted a charge of disorderly behaviour.
Jones told police he had been to a party.
Wyn Jones, prosecuting said Jones was “attired in fetching clothing” in Brook Street, Wrexham, at 3.45 am yesterday.
Jones attracted the attention of police and was arrested.
At the time he was on bail not to be drunk in a public place.
That followed an incident on May 22 where he was abusive to some foreign students.
On that occasion, outside Liquid nightclub, he was chanting “Wrexham ’til I die” and called some Spanish and Portuguese students abusive names.
When arrested, he said, “BNP, all this for defending my country”.
Magistrates fined him £145 after he admitted the racially aggravated public order offence with £115 costs.
But they said that they believed that the bra and tights incident was a prank which went wrong and that being brought to court had been punishment enough for that.
Jones, 21, of Gwenfro, Wrexham, did not receive a separate penalty for that offence.
Gary Harvey, defending, said Jones was a working man who was not a racist.
He worked alongside Lithuanian, Polish and Portuguese people and felt it was a pleasure to work with them, Mr Harvey told the court, adding that alcohol had clearly played its part in that offence.
Mr Harvey added: “My client was wearing the clothes described. It was just a laugh.”
