Man too drunk to appear before Doncaster court



Have your say

A drunk was ejected from Doncaster Magistrates’ Court today after the bench decided he was not fit to appear.

John Stephen Watson, aged 38, of Ansdell Road, Bentley, had already been warned that his behaviour and foul language could be a contempt of court before he was called back into court to answer a charge of shoplifting.

The presiding magistrate said he thought Watson was inebriated and he adjourned the case to until tomorrow morning. “If you come in the morning drunk it may be a different matter,” said the magistrate.
