HERE are some more notable cases heard in Worcester Magistrates Court over the last week.

A man who "enjoyed the beer festival too much" pushed a security guard in Worcester, earning him a fine.

Simon Finch, 32, of Portefields Road, Worcester, appeared before magistrates on August 29 charged with being drunk and disorderly in a public place.

The court heard how, on August 10 this year, police were dealing with an incident outside Shakeeys in Angel Street when Finch approached one of the officers and involved himself in what was happening.

Officers said he had clearly been drinking, and when the he began to swear, he was told to leave the area.

He then pushed past a security guard to get to an officer before being arrested.

Finch was handed a six-month conditional discharge, as well as being ordered to pay costs of £135 as well as a victim surcharge of £21.

Chair of the bench Judy Hulland said: "Next time, don't enjoy the beer festival quite so much."

Also in court on August 29, a man who drove a car he was not insured to drive, without a licence and with a by-product of cocaine in his system, was fined and banned from driving.

Zac Thomas, 30, of Frensham Way, Birmingham, appeared before magistrates in Worcester charged with drug-driving, using a vehicle without insurance and driving without a licence.

The court heard how, on February 14, this year, Thomas was in Bromsgrove driving a car in Austin Road, when some postmen saw him drive past at speed, before turning round and driving back towards them shouting at one out of the window.

One of the postmen flagged down a police car and Thomas was stopped.

He was found by officers to have benzoylecgonine, a by-product of cocaine, in his system.

He also had no insurance and no driving licence.

Magistrates fined Thomas £120, as well as £135 costs and a victim surcharge of £30.
