A MAN who drank more than 10 pints of Guinness admitted he got “too angry” after he was arrested for being drunk and disorderly when he was ejected from a Powys pub.

Androl Basil Dean Jr, 32, was told to leave the Abermule Inn on the evening of Saturday, February 4, having been drinking since 1pm.

Dean, from Abermule, was arrested at around 10pm, Welshpool Magistrates’ Court heard earlier this month.  

Prosecutor Helen Tench said Dean had been “acting belligerently” during the incident.

Dean admitted one charge of being drunk and disorderly at court on Tuesday, March 7.


“Police were called to the Abermule Inn pub at 10pm following a report of a male refusing to leave,” said Mrs Tench.

“He was acting disorderly. When police arrived they saw a female outside crying and upset. The defendant was said to be acting belligerently. CCTV shows the defendant walking towards the exit, then something is said by a male and he tried to get to him.

“He pushed a door and is heard saying ‘you’re dead’. He ended up pushing his partner.

“He was arrested by PC Morgan and said the following morning he had no recollection of the previous evening. He said he had been out since 1pm and had drunk more than 10 pints of Guinness.”

Mrs Tench said Dean was currently subject to a community order he had received for a previous offence, but Dean himself said he had completed the requirements of the order.

County Times:

“I have no involvement with probation anymore. I finished the order in November or December,” he said, speaking on his own behalf.

“I apologised to the publican and I would apologise to the person if I saw them.

“I was antagonised as I got asked to leave. I got too angry and acted out which I shouldn’t have.”

Magistrates fined Dean £233 and told him to pay a £93 surcharge, as well as £85 costs.
