A DRUNK who had to be held up by an off-duty police officer was aggressive and abusive when offered a lift home in a police van.
Romalidis Povilaitis shouted and swore, and continued to be aggressive when he was cautioned.
Appearing at Ely courthouse on Thursday, 51-year-old Polilaitis, of Norfolk Road, Ely, admitted being drunk and disorderly near his home on June 18.
He told the court: "I am guilty, that is all I can say, I can't explain anything."
Magistrates were told that Povilaitis was already subject to a six-month supervision order with the probation service, and was in touch with Drinksense.
After hearing that Povilaitis had previous convictions for drink-related matters, presiding magistrate Hamish Ross told him: "We are very concerned there is a pattern relating to drink and your unacceptable disorderly behaviour.
