A BRYNMAWR man offered to fight police officers, calling “come on you pigs, let’s have some”, a court heard.
Caerphilly Magistrates’ Court was told Prashal Atul Patel, 25, had drunk seven shorts in The Griffin pub and had no recollection of the incident, only remembering waking up handcuffed in the back of a police car.
Prosecutor Ruth Hale told the court that Patel walked up to the officers, who were sitting in a patrol car at 1.15am on February 3.
She said he gestured with both hands calling “come on”, before adding “come on you pigs, let’s have some”, continuing to shout.
He was then arrested.
Patel, of Beaufort Street, was fined £110, ordered to pay £85 costs and £20 victim surcharge after admitting using threats and obstructing a constable.
