KING’S LYNN: Man sorry for taxi office staff abuse
Throwing a drunken punch at a taxi driver led to a court appearance for a West Norfolk man on a charge of being drunk and disorderly.
Aaron Burrows admitted he had drunk too much before the incident in the town when he appeared before Lynn magistrates on Friday.
The court heard that 25-year-old Burrows had been threatening and abusive towards staff at a taxi office on Norfolk Street, Lynn.
Gary Mayle, prosecuting, told the hearing that one of the taxi drivers then reported Burrows to a police officer who was on patrol in the area.
Burrows, of Main Road, Titchwell, pleaded guilty to a single charge of being drunk and disorderly in the early hours of February 1.
Representing himself at the hearing, he said: “I’m sorry for what happened.
“I drank too much. I should have known my boundaries but I didn’t.”
He also admitted being in breach of a 12-month conditional discharge, which was imposed in April last year for an offence of theft.
Burrows was fined £120 for being drunk and disorderly, with £70 costs.
Magistrates took no action on the breach, but allowed the conditional discharge to continue.
