A Spalding man has been fined after he admitted repeatedly swearing in a waiting area at Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital.

Kamil Dudek (20), of Harvey Close, admitted using threatening and abusive words and behaviour when he appeared at Boston Magistrates Court.

Prosecuting, Jim Clare said police attended an address in Anfield Road, Long Sutton at 7.30am on September 27 and were met by Dudek who was shirtless and barefoot and had an injury which was bleeding.

He was taken to hospital by ambulance and was said to be ‘behaving strangely’ in the ambulance, when he deliberately rolled off a seat and injured himself.

Mr Clare said that in the waiting room he was swearing at the police repeatedly despite being told to stop and continued to do so even after a Polish lady there with her young son asked him not to do so.

Eventually Dudek was arrested.

Mitigating, Philippa Chatterton said Dudek was ‘very drunk’ and had fallen at his friend’s house and hurt his head.

She said his friend had called an ambulance but he did not want to go to hospital and had later fallen while he was in the ambulance.

Fining him £120, the magistrates told Dudek he had made people in public service ‘subject to your swearing’.

He was also ordered to pay £115 in costs and charges.
