A man tried to evade capture by police by running from a property he was barred from visiting under the terms of his bail.
Donald Maguire, 50, of Central Drive should not have been at the home of a woman on Caunce Street.
Maguire admitted breaching bail imposed pending his trial for assault.
Steven Townley, defending, told Blackpool magistrates: “My client had gone into town for a drink and bumped into the woman who told him she had dropped the charges against him.
“He thought it would be OK to go back to her home.
“But the bail restrictions were still in place.”
Maguire was rebailed.
