A drunk man was aggressive to an ambulance crew before walking in front of vehicles and then taking down his trousers and urinating in a police vehicle.
Christopher Andrew Morrow (31), of Ballysnod Road, Larne, appeared at Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday June 14 and admitted charges of criminal damage to a police vehicle, possessing cannabis and being simple drunk on a road in the Inver area of the town on May 17 this year.
A prosecutor said police were called to assist an ambulance crew as a drunk male was being “aggressive” to them before he left and was walking in front of vehicles.
Ambulance staff found £2 worth of cannabis in the defendant’s property which he had left behind.
When arrested the defendant “took down his trousers” and urinated in a police vehicle and swore at police.
When interviewed Morrow admitted the cannabis was for his own personal use and he admitted urinating.
A defence lawyer said the defendant had asked police if he could go to the toilet and when he was told he couldn’t “he had no other option”.
District Judge Nigel Broderick said it was “quite a nasty thing to relieve himself in the police vehicle”.
The defendant had a relevant record and the case was adjourned until July for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
