A judge has slammed a man’s appalling behaviour towards paramedics and police officers who were trying to help him.

Craig Lowthian, who was drunk and bleeding from a cut, threatened to knock out the medics and officers.

Lowthian, 33, of Preston Street, Kirkham, admitted breach of the peace and was bound over in the sum of £250 for two years by District Judge Huw Edwards sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

The judge told Lowthian: “Your behaviour was dreadful towards people who were trying to help you.”

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said on Saturday police were called by an ambulance crew to ask for help attending an address in Wellington Street, Kirkham, on Saturday at 7.45pm

Lowthian was found lying half-in and half-out of a bathroom.

He was drunk and abusive, threatening to knock out the medics and officers.

He was treated for a cut and then taken to hospital where his bad behaviour carried on and he was arrested.

Lowthian told the judge: “I’m very sorry it happened.”
