A DRUNK woman was arrested after refusing to leave a Hereford nightclub, a court has heard.

Alice Brown admitted one count of drunk and disorderly behaviour when she appeared before magistrates in Hereford.

Police were called to Play nightclub in Hereford in the early hours of the morning on August 8 after Brown refused to leave when asked, prosecutor Elizabeth Blacklock said.

Officers asked Brown, who they said was unsteady and slurring her speech, to walk away from the entrance with them, but she refused to give them her name and attempted to go back in to the club.

But when she was warned she would be arrested if she did not leave, Brown, who has two previous convictions for drunk and disorderly behaviour in 2015 and 2016, started waving her arms around and swearing.

She was arrested after again refusing to comply with officers.


Speaking on her own behalf, the 25-year-old said she was disappointed in herself and very sorry for her behaviour.

"It's a long time since I have got into trouble," she said.

"My mental health is not very good at the moment and it comes out when I drink, but I am now getting help from my doctor."

Brown, of The Pastures, Lower Bullingham, was fined £123. She must also pay costs of £135 and a £23 victim surcharge.
