Local Man Given Ticket For Alleged Verbal Assault

The Atlantic Inn

The Atlantic Inn

A St Mary’s man has been given an £80 fixed penalty ticket after a disturbance last week.

It’s alleged that, at around 10.30pm on the Thursday before gig weekend, the local male started verbally abusing another man inside the Atlantic Inn.

The male on the receiving end told police he had tried to reason and explain that he didn’t know the man in question, and it was a case of mistaken identity.

Some visiting gig rowers contacted police when they became concerned and when they arrived, the confrontation had moved onto the street.

PC Mat Collier says it has taken some time to serve the man with the ticket for a public order offence because they have had to track him down.
