A 19-year-old man who was abusive to police was fined £250 last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for disorderly behaviour.
Aaron Berben, Coronation Street, Lurgan, was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.
The court heard that on October 4 last year at 4.28am police were called to a disturbance at Coronation Street where they saw two males at a phone box and they took off when they saw police.
They approached the defendant and said they were going to carry out a search.
He became aggressive and abusive, swearing loudly and using profanities, in a public area where there were lights on in nearby houses.
Berben said to police: “You f—king pig b—ds.”
He talked over officers and after being cautioned he said: “I know where your kids live.”
A barrister representing the defendant said it was obnoxious behaviour.
