A MAN who fought with three police officers outside a Wrexham nightclub had earlier won a £50 drinks voucher.

North East Wales Magistrates’ Court heard how Glyn Levi Roberts, 21, had to be pepper sprayed on four separate occasions as he resisted arrest following an altercation by ATIK on Brook Street.

Rhian Jackson, prosecuting, said Roberts, who pleaded guilty to charges of being drunk and disorderly and obstructing a police officer, was approached by PC Erin Hulley at around 4am on July 14.

Roberts, of Galaxy Grove, Brynteg, was arguing with a female and was becoming increasingly aggressive before he pinned another male against a wall.

Officers tried to calm Roberts down but he began waving his arms and shouting “f*** off” and as they tried to bring him to ground he began resisting and fighting back.

Roberts was repeatedly sprayed in the eyes but continued to resist as officers sat on his legs.

Patrick Geddes, defending, said his client was an unemployed handyman who had no regular income and slept on the sofa at his brother’s house.

Chair of the bench, Sanjay Bhalla, imposed a 12 month community order with a requirement of 80 hours unpaid work. Roberts will also pay a victim surcharge of £90 and £85 court costs.
