A teenager who drunkenly swore at police when they took his booze away from him has promised not to drink in public again.
Thomas Alcock caused a nuisance after drinking outside McDonald’s in Dewsbury town centre.
He admitted a charge of being drunk and disorderly when he appeared before Kirklees magistrates.
Police were called to McDonald’s at just after 9pm on August 22.
Alex Bozman, prosecuting, said Alcock walked towards the officers and was extremely unsteady on his feet.
He was drinking from a bottle of alcohol, which is banned in the town centre.
Police confiscated the bottle from Alcock, of Smallwood Gardens in Dewsbury, and he swore at them.
The 18-year-old promised to behave himself but when an officer returned soon after he caught the teen handing out alcohol to his friends.
Alcock ran off but was caught and arrested.
Magistrates heard that Alcock’s last conviction for drunk and disorderly behaviour in public was in May.
The teenager promised to only drink at home in the future and not in the street.
Magistrates gave him a conditional discharge for 12 months and ordered him to pay £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
