'Drunken' Sherriff sentenced for Scunthorpe offence
A REGULAR troublemaker fell foul of the police after drunkenly hurling abuse during a foul-mouthed confrontation, a court heard.
Robert Sherriff, 20, formerly of Mallard Road, Scunthorpe, admitted being drunk and disorderly and damaging an electronic tagging box on February 5.
Rebecca Dolby, prosecuting, told North Lincolnshire magistrates that Sherriff went to Scunthorpe police station to hand in a broken tagging box. He was drunk and was shouting and swearing, she said.
She told the court he returned 10 minutes later and was banging on doors and windows loudly.
He continued shouting and being abusive, she said.
Sherriff admitted breaching a curfew order made at the same court on January 30 for breaching his anti-social behaviour order.
Pamela Coxon, mitigating, said Sherriff had alcohol problems and needed help to tackle these issues after things went "belly up".
Unemployed Sherriff, now of Gertrude Street, Grimsby, was given 80 hours' unpaid work and was ordered to pay £250 compensation.
