Tyrone Collingwood, 34, of Monks Dyke Road, was drunk, swearing, being abusive to staff on board and refusing to wear a face covering, Peterborough Magistrates’ Court was told on Monday (February 1).

British Transport Police who boarded the train found him with an almost-empty bottle of Scrumpy Jack cider.

“His speech was slurred, he took a significant amount of time to answer and he was repeating himself,” said prosecutor Micaila Williams.

“Officers could smell intoxicating liquor, his eyes were glazed and pupils dilated.”

Collingwood was asked to leave the train but became aggressive towards officers.

At one point, with his arms above his head, he lunged towards an officer.

He was grabbed and arrested for being drunk and disorderly.

Miss Williams said as Collingwood was being led up a ramp at the station, he began to complain that his trousers were falling down.

She described how he rocked his hips to shake off his trousers and underwear, exposing his genitals.

Collingwood then made a comment, drawing attention to his state of undress.

Miss Williams said his trousers were pulled up but he repeated the exposure outside the station.

“Effectively, he was allowed to sleep off the alcohol before being released,” added the prosecutor.

The incident took place on October 28, 2020.

Magistrates found the case proved in Collingwood’s absence as he had also failed to attend a previous hearing on the matter.

He was fined £100 and ordered to pay £85 costs and £34 victim surcharge.
