Berwick Magistrates' Court

Berwick magistrates heard how Allan Bloomfield, 33, of Palace Green, was arrested on October 21 .

James Long, prosecuting, told the court that police were called to reports of a drunk man near Robert Smith’s fish and chip shop on Main Street, Tweedmouth.

Police said they found the defendant intoxicated but did not believe it was alcohol.

The defendant had a cut to his head and police were worried about his well-being so an ambulance was called.

Mr Long told the court that the defendant became aggressive and used foul language to police officers and, later, paramedics.

The court was also told the defendant had been involved in a dispute with his brother earlier in the day.

Magistrates heard the offence also put him in breach of a suspended sentence.

Ian Wilson, in defence, said his client did not accept that he was intoxicated. He said he acted the way he did out of frustration at being asked to leave the area. He did not want help from police or the ambulance service.

The case was adjourned until January 23 for sentencing.
