A fisherman who spat at a police officer after drunkenly abusing shop staff will be sentenced in June.
Jason Craig Quayle of Reayrt-ny-Chrink in Crosby appeared before Deputy High Bailiff James Brooks at Douglas Courthouse.
The 24 year old admitted assaulting police, resisting officers, using threatening behaviour and possessing cannabis on April 5.
Prosecutor Hazel Carroon told the court Quayle became abusive in Shoprite on Michael Street in Peel when he was refused alcohol because he was too drunk.
He left the store, but was arrested when he returned a short time later – and struggled with officers as he was being taken into custody.
At police headquarters, he spat directly into the face of an officer.
Mr Brooks asked for pre-sentencing reports to be prepared and bailed Quayle in the sum of £500 on condition he doesn’t enter licensed premises, buy alcohol or consume it in public.
He’s due to appear in court again on June 16.
