A Fleetwood man was arrested after punching the walls in a flat and bouncing around on his toes.

Alex Jackson, 21, of North Albert Street, Fleetwood, pleaded guilty to breach of the peace and was bound over in the sum of £100 for 12 months by District Judge Huw Edwards sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Alison Quanbrough, prosecuting, said police were called to North Albert Street on July 10 at 8.20pm.

Jackson, who had been drinking, was aggressive and refused to come out of the kitchen.

As an officer took his arm and escorted him out, Jackson shouted: “I’m not going anywhere until I get my rent back off him.”

Steven Townley, defending, said it was a row between friends about money, which got out of hand.
