A MAN who refused to calm down following a reported fight outside a Chester bar has been fined.

Tony Harris, 33, of Clover Lane, Lache, pleaded guilty at the first opportunity at Chester Magistrates Court on Friday, November 24 to being drunk and disorderly, from an incident outside the Commercial in St Peter's Churchyard, Chester.

Prosecuting, Scott Woodward said it was on November 4 when police were called to the area following a report of a fight between two men.

Police saw one of the two men, Harris, who appeared "intoxicated, slurring his speech" and had glazed eyes, and appeared aggressive.

He made comments along the lines of: "The next time I see him, watch what happens...I'm not a***d...I have just battered him, wait till tomorrow. I will do him, I'm a f*****g professional boxer."

The court heard Harris had eight previous convictions for 11 offences, the most recent in March.

Harris, representing himself, said he had nothing to add.

A representative from probation heard Harris was on post-sentence supervision and this incident had "been a setback", but Harris was "candid" about the incident.

Harris was fined £40 and ordered to pay £120 court costs and a £16 victim surcharge.
