Man ends up in court for swearing at police; NEWS IN BRIEF.
Jason Sweeney, 24, of Heol Scwrfa, Merthyr Tydfil, admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour on April 17 at Yew Street, Troedyrhiw, as he tried to flag down a taxi.
Simon Beattie, prosecuting at Merthyr Tydfil Magistrates' Court, said it was just past midnight when police asked Sweeney and his friends, who had been asked to leave the party, to keep the noise down.
The intoxicated Sweeney swore at them, was abusive and was eventually arrested.
Simon Bird, defending, said Sweeney, who was made redundant from the Gellideg Foundation in January, would accept what had happened because he could not really remember.
"He does not have a precise recollection," said Mr Bird.
"He was asked to keep the tone down because it was late at night but does not remember what he said."
Sweeney was fined pounds 35 and ordered to pay pounds 85 costs with a pounds 15 victim surcharge.
He was also urged by magistrates to think about things because "when drink comes in, sense goes out".
