Man fined after drunken struggle with Police

A man from Douglas has been warned about his drinking after he drunkenly struggled with police outside his home.

Matthew James Patrick Wilson of Finch Hill Grove admitted three charges when he appeared before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas Courthouse.

The 21 year old admitted possessing cannabis, being drunk and disorderly and resisting police on May 16.

The court heard Wilson had sought professional help after a previous conviction for drunkenness earlier this year.

Mrs Hughes fined him a total of £1,000 and ordered him to pay £125 costs  - also banning him from buying alcohol for three months.

After hearing Wilson works on licensed premises, Mrs Hughes told him licensees take a dim view of employing people with convictions for drunkenness.
