A MAN was thrown out of court after refusing to stand for magistrates.
Paul Boocock was due to appear before Kirklees magistrates yesterday.
He is accused of trespassing at the Galpharm stadium with intent to do unlawful damage.
But before the 24-year-old’s case was heard, magistrates told him to leave.
He had been sitting in on another case and didn’t stand with the rest of the court when the bench arrived.
A court security guard then escorted him from the building after he demanded to know why he should adhere to etiquette.
It is not the first time that Boocock, of Blackmoorfoot Road in Crosland Moor, has disrupted the court.
During his first appearance earlier this month he refused to give name to magistrates, telling them that he was ‘a guardian for the person’ Boocock.
He is alleged to have entered the stadium via the spectators’ gantry on August 4.
There he allegedly damaged a fridge at a concession stand and helped himself to alcohol and crisps.
Boocock denied the charge and faces trial at the court.
Another man, Qassim Hall, 28, is accused of the same offence.
The case was adjourned so that the men could be produced together.
