Shildon teenager urinated in police car after pub scuffle
A MAN urinated in a police car following his arrest after a scuffle outside a Shildon pub.
Teenager Jack Lockey, of Dalton Crescent, Shildon, went to the Three Tuns with a friend on September 6.
Newton Aycliffe magistrates heard Lockey was given a bottle of lager bought elsewhere.
The landlord asked Lockey, 18, to leave when he was spotted topping up his drink with the lager.
Prosecutor Blair Martin said: “Lockey and his friend left the pub. They returned a short while after and Lockey had a bottle of booze.
“He was aggressive and he swung the bottle back and forth.
“Lockey threw the bottle in the direction of the landlord and it smashed on the ground. He was arrested but resisted officers.
“On the way to the police station he urinated in the police car.”
Mr Blair said a window at the pub was broken and Lockey was angry at being blamed and insisted he had not thrown the bottle.
Rob Hutchinson, mitigating, said: “When asked to leave (the pub) Lockey went amicably but his friend wasn’t happy. Lockey tried to keep his friend and the landlord apart.
“As a result Lockey and the landlord scuffled and the bottle smashed. Lockey was arrested and tells the police he really needs the toilet and as nothing can be done he urinates in the car.”
Lockey admitted criminal damage, resisting arrest and using threatening words or behaviour. In committing these offences he broke a six-month conditional discharge which he admitted.
The case was adjourned until October 1 at Newton Aycliffe for a pre-sentence report.
