A 26-YEAR-old who had a fight in Hereford has been giving a conditional discharge.

At Hereford Magistrates' Court Jason Griffin of Grantham Close, Belmont pleaded guilty to using threatening/abusive words/ behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

He also pleaded guilty to failing to comply with a section 35 direction which excluded him from Hereford city centre.

Lesley Ashton, prosecuting, said Griffin first came to the attention of police following a report of a disturbance at Mamma Jammas in West Street, Hereford on January 31. He was then issued with a section 35 order to get him leave the area.

But then at 3am there were reports of a fight taking place and officers arrived to find two men fighting, including Griffin.

One of the officers described the fight as "disgusting". Griffin was arrested, and the other man is also being prosecuted.

Griffin, who represented himself, said his behaviour was not acceptable.

The court heard he owed £765 to the courts, which he was paying off.

Magistrates gave him a conditional discharge for 12 months and he was ordered to pay £135 costs and a victim surcharge of £15.
