A man who stole a case of lager from Morrisons in Mansfield Woodhouse admitted he was drunk and being ‘stupid as usual’, a court has heard.

Jodie Richard Buck, 27, of Lawrence Avenue, Mansfield Woodhouse, admitted stealing the £10 case of Fosters from the superstore on June 2.

Lee Shepherd, prosecuting, said: “He was spotted by a security guard and stopped. He then became aggressive. Another customer helped and brought him to the floor.”

The court heard Buck had one previous conviction for a non-dwelling house burglary in 2011.

Buck told magistrates at Mansfield court: “I was drunk and being stupid as usual and I am sorry.”

He was fined £50 and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £30.
