Great Yarmouth man was drunk and disorderly at The Walks in King’s Lynn

A man swore at police, raised his fists and grabbed a member of the public during a drunken rampage in a town park.

Zilvinas Labutis, 30, appeared at Lynn Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, where he pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in a public place.

Prosecuting, Nicola Lamb said that on March 19, police responded to numerous calls from members of the public regarding a man shouting, swearing and assaulting people in The Walks.

Labutis reportedly grabbed one person by the shoulders, and raised his fists at another.

He was also seen walking alongside another man while shouting at him – and was “clearly drinking”, according to Ms Lamb.

Labutis, of Litchfield Road in Great Yarmouth, refused to speak to police or provide any details, telling officers to “go away” before trying to walk off himself.

Despite his speech being slurred, he was still able to swear at the officers. He was taken to a police car – where he continued to shout and display abusive language – before being arrested.

Labutis, who appeared in court unrepresented and spoke through a translator, said: “I would like to apologise. I have regret for my actions.”

Magistrates, led by Ginni Hutton, fined the defendant £116 for his offence.

He was also told to pay £105 in legal costs and a £46 victim surcharge.
