A TEENAGER who admitted racially abusing a doorman said he couldn’t remember what he said.

Billy Lee Victor Purcell, aged 19, of no fixed abode, verbally abused a member of the door staff at a Dorchester bar during last year’s New Year’s Eve celebrations, Weymouth Magistrates Court heard.

Prosecutor Elizabeth Valera said officers came across Purcell drunk and shouting at a doorman outside a bar in Trinity Street at 2.35am on January 1.

Purcell repeatedly hurled racial abuse at the doorman, the court was told.

Magistrates gave Lackenby an 18-month conditional discharge and ordered he pay a victim surcharge of £15.

They made no order for costs.
