A drunk and disorderly grandma was arrested while outside her granddaughter’s house.
Rebecca Clegg, 44, was found “swaying with half a bottle of wine” in the garden of her son’s girlfriend at Fieldhead Parade in Batley at 7.40am.
Clegg, of Nussey Avenue in Birstall, admitted the charge but said she had just wanted to see her grandchild on July 29.
Alex Bosnan. prosecuting, told Kirklees Magistrates Court how police were called to the scene where a neighbour told them Clegg had been “kicking off”.
“The police found her at the back of the property in the middle of a road swaying with half a bottle of wine in her hand.
“She told them she’d done nothing wrong but refused to hand wine over.
“She was shouting a lot and said she wanted to see her granddaughter and police decided to arrest her.”
Clegg chose not to have legal representation in court.
Mitigating, she said: “My son had the baby with a girl but we didn’t hit it off so I’d not seen her.
“I’ve cut my drinking down a lot but that week I had a lot of upset and drank throughout the night.
“I ended up in my son’s girlfriend’s garden and got upset when I saw the police.
“I was out of order. I went off the rails.
“I am seeing my granddaughter now after coming to an agreement.”
Lead magistrate John Woocy fined Clegg £40, £85 in costs and a £30 surcharge.
