A man was arrested after he refused to stop arguing with his brother.

Lee Forbes then attempted to headbutt one of the police officers arresting him and shouted: “I’ll bite your nose off.”

Forbes, 36, of Pilling Crescent, Grange Park, Blackpool, pleaded guilty to breach of the peace and was bound over in the sum of £100 for 12 months by District Judge Pamela Baldwin sitting at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Jim Mowbray, prosecuting, said on July 6 police were called to a domestic dispute at Forbes’s address. Forbes refused to stop arguing with his brother, telling him: “I want you gone. Just watch what happens if you stay.”

Forbes told the judge: “ I accept I was drunk. I remember nothing about it. I feel bad about how I behaved.”
