Louth teenager sentenced after ‘appalling’ disturbance


A Louth teenager admitted he had behaved in an ‘appalling’ way when he caused a disturbance in the town, a court has been told.

Nicholas Richard Myers, 19, of Queensway, admitted disorderly behaviour in Monksdyke Road, Louth on November 11, when he appeared in custody before magistrates at Skegness, having been arrested after his failure to attend to answer the charge on December 30.

Paul Wood, prosecuting, said that police were called at 10.40pm and found Myers in the street shouting and swearing at another man.

He said he refused to calm down when police spoke to him, and members of the public in the area were disturbed and lights were being turned on in nearby houses, so he was arrested.

Nicholas Alderson, mitigating, said that Myers accepted he’d had far too much to drink and that he was being stupid.

“He knows it was appalling to behave like that,” he said.

He added that Myers wanted to apologise to the people in the area who were disturbed.

Magistrates imposed a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered him to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £35 costs.
