After he was abusive towards his father a 28-year-old man was to go and spend the night with a relative but instead ended up in a police cell.

Paul Thomas Wilson, Garvaghy Park, Portadown was fined £75 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for disorderly behaviour on August 6 this year.

He was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard that at 1.15am Wilson had been abusive towards his father who contacted the police asking them to remove his son.

Wilson agreed to spend the night with a nearby relative but became abusive saying ‘I’ve done nothing f—king wrong’ and ‘f—k this’.

He was arrested for shouting in a residential area and spent the night in a cell.

A barrister representing the defendant said he had taken a few drinks and when he was processed by police he expressed remorse.

Deputy District Judge Neil Rafferty told Wilson that the police had better things to do than referee arguments between him and his father.
