A man who rowed with his girlfriend’s parents in the early hours of the morning has admitted resisting police officers who were called to the scene.

Kaan Harley Douglas of no fixed abode appeared before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas Courthouse.

The 28 year old pleaded guilty to one count of resisting police in the execution of their duty on December 4.

The court heard officers were called to Kerroo Mooar in Sulby after reports of a domestic disturbance and found Douglas behaving violently and damaging property.

They arrested him, suspecting he was under the influence of drugs – which his advocate denied during the hearing – and Douglas had to be restrained by two officers and a civilian.

After hearing he’d been given a suspended jail sentence in March, Mrs Hughes adjourned the case and asked for pre-sentencing reports to be prepared.

Douglas was bailed to his mother’s address in Melbourne Street in Douglas in the sum of £500 and will appear in court again on February 6.
