Fine for 'drunk and incapable' man found in SPAR

Mon, 16 May 2016


A Douglas man has been fined after being found drunk and incapable in his local SPAR store.
 
42-year-old John Kirkland had to be picked up off the floor by staff in Anagh Coar on April 28th after complaining of being dizzy. 
 
When police arrived they found his speech was slurred, he smelt of intoxicants and was unsteady on his feet. 
 
At Douglas Courthouse last week Kirkland pleaded guilty to the offence - his advocate said he realised it wasn't "acceptable behaviour" but his client was suffering from "alcohol addiction". 
 
Sentencing him Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes said there was no element of disorderly behaviour - she fined him £150, ordered him to pay court costs and handed him a three month licensing ban.
