Drinker arrested at public toilet told: ‘Get help’

Have your say

POLICE arrested a drunken man in Spalding’s Sheep Market after being called by toilet attendants, magistrates heard.

Officers found Krzysztof Marchlewski drinking from a bottle of lager in the entrance to the public loos on May 25.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said officers took his drink to dispose of it and warned him about swearing.

He then used the F-word four times, including once to describe Britain and once to describe the British people.

Marchlewski (42), of Severn Road, Spalding, was unrepresented in court and told magistrates he stopped drinking some time before the offence.

He was on tablets on the day but a friend gave him “a little bit to drink”.

Marchlewski apologised and told the court: “I have good relationships with English people.”

He was conditionally discharged for 12 months after pleading guilty to being drunk and disorderly. He must also pay £85 costs.

The court heard Marchlewski is currently on a supervision order for a previous offence.

Presiding magistrate Hildegard Carter said: “Don’t drink and take the tablets. The help is there for you. You can always get in touch with Addaction and they will help you as well.”

Marchlewski told the court he works at Adams meat factory on 5.30am-2pm shifts.
