A drunken reveller said he felt he was ‘in the middle of nowhere’ when police dropped him out of Mansfield town centre for being a nuisance.

Sam David Glasby (24) of The Leaway, Shirebrook, was found drunk by officers in a doorway on Mansfield’s Clumber Street in the early hours of the morning and ordered him to leave the area, issuing him with a notice.

When he refused, he was driven to Tesco on Chesterfield Road South and dropped off.

But half an hour later, he was spotted by the officers again trying to get into Rewind nightclub on Clumber Street.

Admitting a charge of being drunk and disorderly and failing to comply with a section 35 dispersal order, defending Treve Landers, said: “When he was taken to Tesco, he felt like a fish out of water and was not well enough or thinking straight enough to get himself back home.

“He tried to find someone in the nightclub who could help him.”

Glasby said he had drunk around 10 cans of alcohol at home before heading into the town centre at around 10pm where he carried on drinking.

He was fined £170 in total, and was made to pay £85 costs and a £20 surcharge.
