A FOUL-MOUTHED tirade at police officers proved costly for Worksop soldier Craig Firth.

Firth, 20, of St Paul’s Road, admitted being drunk and disorderly outside the Litten Tree pub in Worksop on 10th September.

Catherine Picardo, prosecuting, told Worksop magistrates how police intervened when they saw Firth threatening his sister.

The court heard how Firth, a soldier in Northern Ireland, became aggravated, swearing and struggling when officers tried to arrest him.

David Verity, defending, said: “He admits coming out with certain language towards the officers but denies threatening his sister.”

Firth must pay a total of £270.
