Night out ends in £125 fine

Refusing to leave Worksop town centre landed a man with a £125 fine this week.

Danny Herdman, 24, shouted and swore at police officers and refused to accept a direction of law notice or leave the scene, prosecutor Catherine Picardo told Worksop Magistrates’ Court.

He had earlier tried to get involved in an altercation which police were dealing with.

Herdman, of Spur Crescent, Worksop, admitted failing to comply with the direction of a PC.

Defence solicitor David Grant said it was the first time Herdman had been out drinking with his 18-year-old brother and wanted to make sure that he was all right before he left.
