A man who was caught urinating "in full view of the public" in a Tesco car park in a Suffolk town has been ordered to pay out more than £500. 

Curt Day-Gliddon, of no fixed address, was fined £345, and ordered to pay costs of £105 and a victim surcharge of £138 during a hearing at Suffolk Magistrates' Court in Ipswich after being convicted of being drunk and disorderly in Haverhill earlier this year. 

At about 3pm on Saturday, January 27, officers received reports that Day-Gloddon was heavily intoxicated in High Street and was seen shouting and swearing at members of the public. 

When officers arrived, the 32-year-old tipped crisps into a homeless person's bag before running off. 

A short while later police received a call from Tesco in Cangle Road reporting that Day-Gliddon was causing a nuisance and when officers arrived they found him urinating in the car park in full view of the public. 

He was arrested and continued to swear at officers as he was being walked to the police van, which he then urinated inside of.

PC Scrivener, of the Haverhill response investigation team, said: “I have never seen such a blatant example of someone being drunk and disorderly.

“Curt Day-Gliddon’s level of intoxication led him to behave in an abusive way to a number of members of the public, including particularly shameful behaviour directed at a homeless person.

“Not content with that, he then proceeded to urinate in full view of the public in the middle of the afternoon in a car park, before abusing police officers.

“This type of behaviour is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our communities.”
