POLICE arrested a man for being drunk and disorderly after members of the public saw him urinating in a shop doorway.
Neil Stevens was arrested in Copnor Road, Copnor, Portsmouth, at 7.30pm on December 2, after a number of complaints to the police.
The 57-year-old, of Waverley Road, Southsea, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly when he appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court.
Prosecutor Graham Dubber said Stevens had a number of previous convictions for being drunk and disorderly in public.
The magistrates handed Stevens a six-month conditional discharge, which means he will not receive any further punishment if he stays out of trouble for that time. He was also told to pay £50 in costs.
