Willaston man fined for urinating on pub

Fifty-one year old pleads guilty to abusive behaviour

A Willaston man’s been fined after urinating against a pub.

Fifty-one year old Joseph Langton of Keppel Road appeared before magistrates at Douglas courthouse.

He pleaded guilty to one count each of using threatening or abusive behaviour and being drunk and indecent.

Prosecution advocate Roger Kane told the hearing Langton was drinking with his brother at Jaks on Loch Promenade in Douglas on 26 September.

Just before 11.30pm, door staff noticed his drunken behaviour and asked him to leave, when he became abusive.

Langton threatened security staff who escorted him outside – and a short time later they noticed him zipping up his trousers near a puddle of urine.

CCTV showed he’d urinated in front of other pubgoers on the wall just outside a pub entrance.

Langton was fined £550 and magistrates also ordered him to pay £50 towards prosecution costs.
