A man swore at police officers, accused them of harassment and shouted aggressively at them: “Come on,” a court was told.

Paul Bunting also told officers: “I want a lawyer, this is police harassment,” after being repeatedly asked to leave the flat next-door to his.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said police were called to a report of an incident between Bunting and another man at a flat on Central Drive on March 3 about midnight.

When officers arrived, Bunting argued with them and told them he would return to the flat when they left.

Bunting, 41, of Central Drive, Blackpool, pleaded guilty to breach of the peace and was bound over in the sum of £100 for 12 months by District Judge Jeff Brailsford sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.
