A YOUTH ejected from a funeral “wake” due to his drunken behaviour ended up urinating on police property and graffiti-ing the cell in his own blood.
Grays Youth Court heard that the 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons was at the “wake” in Corringham on the 4th January.
He had stepped outside but was not permitted to re-enter due to his drunken state. As the youth continued to shout and swear, the police were called and he was arrested.
Once in Grays Police Station, the youth was placed in a “harm suit” and put into a cell but he ripped off the suit, urinated on it and threw it into the toilet.
He then picked on a scab and wrote obsenities on the cell wall in his own blood.
Throughout the evidence, the youth smirked in court and stood with his hands in his pockets.
Asked to explain his behaviour by Presiding Magistrate, Mr Payne, the youth replied: “I don’t care. I lost my temper, everyone does.”
He was given a six-month Youth Rehabilitation Order and fined £50.
