Drunken man fell over when speaking to police


A drunken man who urinated in an alleyway in Portadown was fined £75 last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for indecent behaviour.

James McConnell (28), Princess Way, Portadown, was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard that on August 30 last year at approximately 1am in Mandeville Street, Portadown, the defendant came out of a night club and staggered into a nearby alleyway.

He was seen urinating against a fence.

He was heavily intoxicated and fell over when speaking with police.

On September 5 police spoke to him and he had no recollection of what happened.

McConnell apologised for his behaviour.
