A DRUNKEN man has been fined by magistrates for his behaviour at a Herefordshire pub.

James Wilson was proven guilty in his absence of one count of drunk and disorderly behaviour in a public place by magistrates in Hereford in August.

The court heard from prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 61-year-old had been drunk and disorderly at the Queen's Arms pub in Bromyard on June 12.


Wilson was not present and was not represented by a solicitor in his absence at the hearing.

Wilson, of Linton Court, Bromyard, was fined £100 for the offence.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £135 and a £40 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
