A DRUNK man approached police dealing with an incident in Larkhill and urged them to arrest him – and they did, a Salisbury Law Court was told on Friday (Dec 1).

Keith Mills, 40, swore at the officers dealing with a distressed female in Armitage Square and asked them “what do I have to do to get arrested?”

Kate Prince, prosecuting, said Mr Mills threatened to kick their vehicle so they told him to move away. But he continued to swear at them – even after he had been arrested.

Mr Mills, of Levell Court, Ludgershall, Andover, admitted being drunk and disorderly in a public place at 2.20pm on November 11.

The court was told he has previous convictions, the last of which was in 2015. Mr Mills has £145 in fines from a Hampshire court outstanding.

Magistrates fined him £40 with £35 costs and a £30 victim surcharge, making £105 in total.

These will be deducted at £5 a week from his state benefits. A collection order was made.
