A MAN has admitted urinating in public while drunk.
Zachary Hodgson, of Valentine Close, Fareham, appeared at Fareham Magistrates’ Court yesterday charged with being drunk and disorderly in a public place.
The 49-year-old pleaded guilty to the offence which took place on July 17 on Bishopsfield Road, Fareham.
Police were called when Hodgson was spotted acting drunk and shouting at passers-by.
When police arrived, he agreed to move away and then stopped and began urinating.
He said that he had been drinking because he had been at a funeral the day before.
Hodgson also appeared in court on September 2 and was given a six-month supervision order and two-month curfew for a separate behaviour offence related to alcohol.
Chair of the magistrates, Dr Nancy North, gave a Hodgson six-month conditional discharge.
She said: ‘You have got to keep your nose clean.’
Hodgson was also made to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £25 court costs.
