AN EMOTIONAL month ended with a drunken episode and arrest for a Cardigan man, a court heard last week.
Aaron Nathaniel Simpson, aged 22, of 35 Maeshenffordd, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to using threatening words/behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress at Cardigan on November 1.
Aberystwyth magistrates heard that police on patrol in the town came across a drunk Simpson shouting and swearing at the occupants of a house in Golwg y Castell, and asking them to come out and have a fight.
Alan Lewis, defending, said his client could not remember what had happened as he had been drinking home-brew, and had been distressed by family issues.
He said: “The last month has been very emotional for him, which he thinks is why he may have been shouting and swearing.”
He added that his client was very apologetic about the incident. He had spent a night in custody in Haverfordwest police station because of it, and had to find his own way to travel the 30 miles home the next day.
Mr Lewis said: “He has not had a drink since, and wants to put this matter behind him and move on.”
Simpson was given a six month conditional discharge, and ordered to pay £85 costs plus a 315 victim surcharge.
