A man has been fined for shouting abuse at police while on a night out, a court heard.

Wayne Gormanly, 24, of Cromford Lane, Buxton, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in Scarsdale Place, Buxton, on June 21 , and was sentenced at High Peak Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Jennifer Fitzgerald, prosecuting, said that the incident occurred at about 3.20am, after he was ejected from Level 2 Nightclub.

Two police officers, who described him as drunk, stumbling and with glazed eyes, watched him attempt to go around the back of the nightclub and asked him to leave.

The court heard that they asked him twice more and Gormanly was confrontational and swore at them, saying: “You can shove your breach of the peace.”

The defendant, who was representing himself, apologised to magistrates for his behaviour, saying that he had had too much to drink.

Pam Ashton, chairman of the Bench, addressing the Gormanly, said: “It’s not the right way to behave.”

She fined him £167 and ordered him to pay a £20 victim surcharge and £85 court costs.
