A MAN has been fined for his drunken behaviour in Wrexham city centre.

David Jamieson, of Davies Avenue in Brymbo, appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The 37-year-old admitted that on May 3, in Town Hill in the centre of Wrexham, he was guilty whilst drunk of disorderly behaviour.

Justin Espie, prosecuting, told the court that on the day of the offence, Jamieson was observed by CCTV operators in the city centre.

The police were called and during discussions with Jamieson, officers formed the view he was intoxicated as he was "shouting, swearing and using abusive language and behaviour."

The police even even offered to take him home, but the behaviour continued.

Elzbeth Kenny, defending, told the court: "He had been to his friend's house earlier and had a drink.


"His friend said it might be better for him to go home, but unfortunately he went to the city centre and had more to drink

"He tells me he then woke up in a cell and is absolutely embarrassed about his behaviour.

"He wants to pass on his apologies to the police for being so rude to them."

The Leader:

Ms Kenny said her client has previously worked as a member of bar staff and an industrial cleaner, and spent 15 years as a roofer.

He is a permanent carer for his partner, she added.

Deputy District Judge Teresa Hinder handed down a fine of £100 and ordered the defendant to pay a £40 victim surcharge, as well as £85 costs.
