A man claimed he had no idea how he ended up drunkenly trying to enter a house before abusing police as they took him home.

Ilmar Apelis, 26, of Fernlea Road, Fairstead, Lynn, admitted being drunk and disorderly when he appeared in court yesterday.

That put him in breach of a conditional discharge, imposed in May for criminal damage, for which he was given a 12 month community order with 80 hours’ unpaid work.

The court heard the latest case related to an incident in North Lynn on July 31.

But Apelis said: “I don’t know how it happened. I was drinking at home and I woke up in the police station.”

Alison Catterell, prosecuting, said police were called following a report that a drunk man was attempting to enter a woman’s house in Sir Lewis Street.

Apelis was found in the road itself, “swaying all over the place”, the court heard.

Mrs Catterell said the officers tried to take him home after he gave an address they later found he didn’t live at.

He gave a second address in Loke Road, but became aggressive after it was found he did not live there either.

He was detained after saying he wanted to urinate in the street, the court was told.
