Douglas man admits being disorderly after disagreement in pub

44-year-old handed 12-month conditional discharge

A Douglas man has been handed a 12-month conditional discharge after admitting being drunk and disorderly in the street.

Police found Timothy James Lonergan, of Summerhill Village, shouting and swearing on Victoria Street just before 2am on 12 February.

The 44-year-old had been asked to leave The Nag’s Head by security staff and was described as being ‘animated’ and ‘aggressive’.

Lonergan’s advocate told the court his client had been drinking in a different pub beforehand but had got into a disagreement after he’d ‘misgendered someone’ and left.

That person then turned up at the second venue and Lonergan was asked to leave with his advocate adding: “He, at that stage, was feeling aggrieved. He wasn’t being disorderly on licensed premises.”

Imposing the order High Bailiff Jayne Hughes also instructed Lonergan to pay prosecution costs of £125.
