Abusive man fined
A MAN was abusive and aggressive to police who were called to a domestic disturbance.
Ronald Wood, 36, refused to leave his partner’s home in Church Street, Marley Hill, Gateshead, on Saturday night after she telephoned police about his behaviour.
Appearing before Gateshead magistrates, Wood, of Lonnen Drive, Swalwell, Gateshead, pleaded guilty to breaching the peace – his second similar offence in five months.
Magistrates told him his behaviour was “totally unacceptable” and bound him over to keep the peace in the sum of pounds 300 for nine months.
He told the bench: “I can’t get a job and am at my lowest ebb.”
