Refusing to leave licensed premises

Hertfordshire Mercury, 1st May 1915


Joseph Watson, the landlord of the hotel, stated that the defendant was singing and he asked him to be quiet, and refused to serve him with any more refreshment.  He then became a nuisance to the other customers, and as he refused to go the witness fetched the police to eject him.  He could not say the defendant was drunk, but he was very disorderly.  P.C. Wells, of Little Berkhamstead, said that when he was called the landlord requested the defendant to leave the house, and he refused; the witness also asked him to go, and the defendant put himself into a fighting attitude and refused to go.  When he got him outside the house he struggled and kicked, and caused all the trouble he could.  Another constable, a special constable, and two members of the Herts Territorials assisted in getting him to the police station.  P.C. Archer corroborated, and the defendant was fined 15s.
