A man with 101 convictions was disorderly and told police: “Come on ahead and arrest me”.
James Brown (46), of Lindara Drive in Larne, had his wish granted during an incident at Carneal Close in the town on December 20 last year.
At Ballymena Magistrates Court on January 24 he pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly behaviour.
The court heard police were tasked in relation to another matter but Brown came out of a property and was “verbally abusive and physically aggressive”.
He said: “F**k the police” and “Come on ahead and arrest me”.
Defence barrister Chris Sherrard said the defendant, who was fined £150, had been “very foolish”.
