A man who bared his backside to police as he tried to get into a King’s Lynn nightclub admitted he was a “fool” when he appeared in court today.

Ainsley Churchill, 21, of Delph Road, Long Sutton, pleaded guilty to a charge of being drunk and disorderly when he appared before magistrates this morning.

The court heard Churchill was seen shouting and swearing at door staff of the Chicago Rock Cafe in Norfolk Street, King’s Lynn, during the early hours of July 3.

They had earlier alerted police to an incident which happened inside the club. Although police asked him if he wanted to make a formal complaint, he refused.

Jane Foster, prosecuting, said Churchill returned to the club shortly afterwards, but was told to move on.

He then tried to get into the building via a rear exit. As police approached him, he bared his backside towards the officers before he was detained.

Churchill, who represented himself during the hearing, told the bench: “I’ve been a fool. All I can do is apologise really.”

He was fined £100 and told to pay a £30 victim surcharge. No order was made for costs.
