A CARBIS BAY man had to be taken to the ground because of his unruly behaviour after security guards removed him from Sound nightclub in Penzance in the early hours of September 30.

At Truro Magistrates' Court James Bark, 22, of Menhyr Drive, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in Wharf Road.

Alison May, for the prosecution, said that Bark, who had been shouting and swearing outside the club, was obviously drunk. He had previous convictions for criminal damage.

Jeremy Leaning, for the defence, said that at the time of the last offences two years ago Bark had stopped drinking.

That lasted until September 30 this year when he went out with his partner and friends to celebrate the birth of their child but drank to excess.

What happened had put a strain on their relationship and they were currently separated. He had promised himself not to drink again.

Bark was fined £90 and £100 costs and surcharge and given a drink banning order for a year.
