Fined for throwing chips in city centre restaurant

A YOUNG woman who threw chips around a city centre restaurant and swore at police has been fined for her behaviour.

Jodie Collins, of the YMCA on Henwick Road, was charged with being drunk and disorderly after she refused to leave Shakey’s Restaurant in Angel Place on December 21.

The 22-year-old, who wasn’t represented when she appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court last Friday (January 9), told the court she only threw her chips after another woman had thrown food at her.

Collins said: “The police came and told me to leave but I went to leave out the front and there was a big herd of people and the police were right behind me telling me to get out but there was too many people in the way.”

She then swore at officers and was subsequently arrested, the court heard.

District Judge Nigel Cadbury said: “It was an unfortunate situation, I can understand why you got angry and didn’t leave the site straight away.”

Collins was fined £35 and ordered to pay court costs of £85 and a £20 victim surcharge.
