Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

A MAN who was picked up by po­lice for be­ing ag­gres­sive out­side a house re­turned later that night to cause an­other dis­tur­bance, court heard.

Po­lice were called to a prop­erty on Church Street, Mac­cles­field, where they found Marko Bar­tulovic, 38, drunk out­side the house, swear­ing and be­com­ing ag­gres­sive, Mac­cles­field Mag­is­trates heard.

Bar­tulovic, of Bowen Close, Bramhall, Stock­port was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of an­other of­fence but a short time later was re­leased by po­lice.

Pros­e­cut­ing, Deb­bie Byrne, said: “At 10.40pm po­lice re­ceived an­other call from a mem­ber of the pub­lic say­ing he was back out­side the prop­erty on Church Street and he was ar­rested for be­ing drunk and dis­or­derly.”

Bar­tulovic pleaded guilty to be­ing drunk and dis­or­derly on April 16 this year.

De­fend­ing him­self, he told the court he is an al­co­holic and was drunk so can’t re­mem­ber what hap­pened.

He said: “I’m try­ing to get help for my drink­ing. My mum just passed away and that’s why I started drink­ing but it’s made it worse.”

He was fined £40 and or­dered to pay £85 court costs.
