A MAN has been fined after swearing at station staff when they refused to let him use an invalid ticket.
Michael Goodwin, 22, pleaded guilty to using unacceptable behaviour on the railway.
Kirklees magistrates were told that the incident happened on April 13 at 9.30am.
Goodwin was ordered off a train at Huddersfield railway station by staff for not having a valid ticket.
He left the station but returned 10 minutes later and tried to use the same invalid ticket.
Bill Astin, prosecuting, said: “Station staff told him that he could not use the ticket and would have to buy a new one.
“He became aggressive and started shouting: ‘I want my f*****g ticket’ on a number of occasions.”
Magistrates were told that Goodwin had been due before Northallerton magistrates on the same day.
Goodwin, of Kingsway Park in Manchester, has previous convictions for offences including assault and disorderly behaviour.
He did not appear for his hearing in the Huddersfield court.
Magistrates fined him £50 and ordered him to pay £40 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
