MAGISTRATES heard a man was so drunk he forgot where he lived when he arrived home, disturbing his neighbours.

Mohammed Hussain, of Bluebell Close, Malvern, admitted the charge of being drunk in a public place - Woodmans Rise, Droitwich - and carrying out disorderly behaviour there.

Emily Clewer, prosecuting, said police were called just after midnight on May 9 to reports of a man causing a disturbance and knocking on doors telling residents that he lived there.

She said on arrival they found the 32-year-old was intoxicated and appeared to have drunk a large quantity of alcohol.

The prosecutor added there had also been reports he broke a fence - but this had not been pursued by the neighbour.

Gary Harper, defending Hussain, explained: “He had just moved into this address (in Woodmans Rise).

"It is on the Westlands estate in Droitwich and the houses all look the same.

“He had not long been there.

"He was extremely intoxicated.

"He couldn’t find the house he was supposed to go to.”

Magistrates heard Hussain was also formerly of the Fownes Hotel when it was used to accommodate homeless people and rough sleepers during the coronavirus pandemic.

And they were told that Hussain had more than £800 in outstanding fines to pay from previous offences - the last being the breach of restraining order.

Hussain was fined £80 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £34, and costs of £135.

He was told the total, £249, would be added to his outstanding debt to the courts, and would be deducted from his Universal Credit at a rate of £5 a week, after magistrates accepted this offer.

The case was heard at Worcester Magistrates Court on Thursday.
