The court heard Foster, 53, was high on drink and drugs when he sneaked into the toilets at the Crow's Nest pub in Newcastle.

Foster, of Normount Road, Benwell, Newcastle, pleaded guilty to using threatening or abusive behaviour and possessing the heroin substitute, subutex, a class A drug, which was found when he was arrested.
