Curt Day-Gliddon fined for ‘shameful behaviour’ while drunk towards homeless person and urinating in public in Haverhill





A man who was convicted of being drunk and disorderly after ‘shameful behaviour’ towards a homeless person and urinating in public and a police van in Haverhill has been fined.

Curt Day-Gliddon, of no fixed address, appeared at Suffolk Magistrates’ Court, in Ipswich, last Monday, where he was fined £345, and ordered to pay costs of £105 and a victim surcharge of £138, making a total of £588.

Day-Gliddon pleaded guilty to a charge of being drunk and disorderly in a public place, in connection with an incident on Saturday, January 27.

At about 3pm on the day in question, Day-Gliddon was heavily intoxicated in High Street and shouting and swearing at members of the public.

When the first police officer arrived he was seen to tip crisps into a homeless person’s bag before running off.

Around 20 minutes later, police received a call from Tesco, in Cangle Road, reporting that Day-Gliddon was causing a nuisance in the shop.

Officers attended and he was found in the car park, urinating in full view of the public.

He was arrested and continued to swear at officers as he was being walked to the police van, which he then urinated inside of.

PC Scrivener, of the Haverhill Response Investigation Team, said: “I have never seen such a blatant example of someone being drunk and disorderly.

“Curt Day-Gliddon’s level of intoxication led him to behave in an abusive way to a number of members of the public, including particularly shameful behaviour directed at a homeless person.

“Not content with that, he then proceeded to urinate in full view of the public in the middle of the afternoon in a car park, before abusing police officers.

“This type of behaviour is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our communities.”
