A ‘NUISANCE’ teen has appeared in court after drunkenly threatening to assault police officers - outside a police station.

Connor Jay Kalvin Whiting, whose address was given as Milton Crescent in Weymouth, appeared unrepresented before Weymouth Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, February 23 for sentencing.

Whiting, 18, pleaded guilty to one charge of being drunk and disorderly in a public place relating to an incident on January 29 of this year.

Victoria Hill, prosecuting, told the court that Whiting had threatened to ‘bang out’ a police officer after being asked to leave the car park of Weymouth Police Station.

The court heard how, at 4.30am on January 29, police officers were returning to the police station when they saw Whiting outside and in a drunken state. Officers invited him into the station, which was declined, before he became disorderly and refused to leave.

Whiting was then escorted away from the entrance.

About 15 minutes later the same officers were responding to a 999 call when they encountered Whiting in the premises of the car park and again asked the teen to leave.

It is at this point that Whiting threatened to ‘bang out’ one of the officers before saying “yeah I did just threaten you”.

After officers took him into the police station he told them “it wasn’t a threat it was a promise.”

Whiting gave no mitigation but admitted that things had got ‘a bit out of hand’ on the night in question.

Ian Humphreys, chairman of the bench of magistrates’, told Whiting he had been out ‘making a nuisance of himself’.

He said: “You were clearly making yourself a nuisance and police officers have far more important things to do than deal with people like you making a nuisance of yourself.

“It’s your fault you're here today so you’re going to pay the costs.”

Humphreys ordered the teen to pay costs of £85, a surcharge of £32 to fund victim services as well as a fine of £80.

The defendant’s guilty plea, at the earliest possible stage, was taken into account when imposing sentence.

Whiting also spells his name Konor Jaye Calvin Whiting.
