He refused to leave and walked back to the town centre.
James told the court he had drunk too much while celebrating a friend's birthday and wanted to know why the police had asked him to leave.
"It was the worst mistake I made," he said.
"I'm not a violent person in any way."
He added he had worked very hard at college and was doing an apprenticeship.
James was fined £100 and was ordered to pay £85 costs and a Government-imposed £20 victims' surcharge.
