Orford dad abused paramedics while celebrating his son's release from jail

Warrington Guardian: Orford dad abused paramedics while celebrating his son's release from jail Orford dad abused paramedics while celebrating his son's release from jail

AN Orford dad, who was out celebrating his son getting out of jail, has been fined after shouting abuse at police and paramedics and being drunk and disorderly in Warrington Hospital.

Halton Magistrates heard on Thursday Graham Farrington now owes the courts more than £700, currently being deducted from his benefits, after a string of offences.

Police and ambulance were called to Warrington town centre at 11.15pm on December 9 last year after Farrington, of Cabul Close, had been knocked unconscious and found the 46-year-old on the floor.

Richard Sealy, prosecuting, said: “He was heavily intoxicated and after being taken to the hospital in an ambulance used abusive behaviour towards paramedics and was seen staggering about and swearing.”

He had a number of previous convictions including a public order offence in October 2012.

Farrington, who defended himself during the hearing, said: “I didn’t know what I had done until the next day when the police told me in the station.

“I’m very sorry and ashamed of myself.

“I would never normally insult staff.

“I was out celebrating and then had been hit and knocked unconscious.”

Magistrates said Farrington’s behaviour was ‘quite disgraceful’.

He was ordered to pay £100 fine, £85 costs and £20 victim surcharge.

Magistrates added: “That is added to what you already owe which is more than £700.

“You have got to stop this kind of behaviour.”

Dave Robb, Merseyside and Cheshire Area Convener at the North West Ambulance Service Unison branch, added: “It doesn’t sound like this is a man who has got any respect for society or the people out there trying to ensure he doesn’t come to any harm.
“We go into any situation totally impartial and are only there to treat the person that requires our assistance.
“An increase in attacks on frontline staff has seen the prosecution services come down heavily on anyone who assaults emergency staff.
“We’re starting to see results but there’s still a long way to go and of course 98 to 99 per cent of people are good and it’s one of two per cent who hit the headlines for the wrong reasons.”

Should have given him 100s of hours of community service. That way he would have to make an effort to repay society. Instead no doubt tax payers will be paying the fines for him via his benifits. Unless he as a job which I very much doubt, with his history. Crackpot !

It may as well be 7 million as i bet the rate of repayment means this will never be settled.

Notes that this is another heavily intoxicated alcoholic beverage drinker unnecessarily causing a nuisance to public services and the community. In addition he was not even adequately punished if he was really sorry about his misdemeanours then he would certainly moderate his drinking and be seeking help, if the addiction is so debilitating.

I live in Orford and generally its alright, could be better don't get me wrong like getting rid of this scum bag (and a few more) but overall not a bad place. I've lived in Orford for 29 years and never had any issues but I've known others to have cars vandalised etc.

What area are you from MAD 4 IT?

Fluorescent pink overalls teamed with 365 12 hour shifts on puke and bed pan duty will help focus his mind and given him some understanding of the **** these people have to put up with from the likes of him.

How the heck can people on benefits afford to go out and get intoxicated? I know that vast majority of people on benefits need every penny they get. Obviously this man is being given too much, so cut the amount to him.

It's a common theme throughout 95% of violent crimes that are reported on here that the perpetrator as "drunk and disorderly" and that they are “I’m very sorry and ashamed of themselves"..

Pathetic horrible drug abusers.
