A drunken Longridge man rang the police and demanded their help after being thrown out of a Preston nightclub.

Kryzyszkof Olejnik, a forklift truck driver from Mersey Street, Longridge, was thrown out of Yates’ Wine Lodge on Church Street, Preston, on June 13, after a night out with friends.

We don’t like that kind of behaviour. Hopefully you are getting the message that being drunk and disorderly is not acceptable

Magistrate

A police officer on patrol saw him being ejected by doorstaff and went over to see what had happened.

The 30-year-old asked them for help to get his jacket which was still inside the bar.

But even after bar staff returned the jacket he demanded help from the police officers, Preston Magistrates’ Court heard.

Prosecuting, Scott Ainge said: “Quite what he wanted assistance with they couldn’t fathom.

“He got argumentative with them but they then had to attend another incident.

“A short time later they returned to the scene and the defendant was still there outside Yates’.

“He had phoned the police asking them for help.

“He lunged towards the officer when he saw him.

“By this stage their patience was wearing thin and he was arrested.”

The magistrates bench heard he had similar convictions on his record. Representing himself, Olejnik, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly but said he did not say anything further. He was ordered to pay a £130 fine, a £20 victim surcharge, £85 costs and a £180 criminal court charge.

The chairman of the bench said: “It is bad behaviour.

“We don’t like that kind of behaviour. Hopefully you are getting the message that being drunk and disorderly is not acceptable.”
