Police arrest drunk at railway station

Have your say

Two police officers woke a sleeping man who was drunk at Spalding Railway Station and he started “waving his arms about” in an attempt to strike both of them.

Sean Cross (35) was asleep by the stairs when officers arrived.

Jim Clare, prosecuting, told Spalding magistrates that Cross wasn’t forthcoming with his name and address.

The officers called for a van and Cross at that point tried to kick a PCSO.

Cross, of no fixed address, said he had split up from his wife and “I pretty much just got plastered”.

He was fined £35 and ordered to pay £60 costs and a £20 victim surcharge when he admitted being drunk and disorderly on April 24.
