MARCH estate agent Paul Kerbey was drunk and abusive to police after he staggered out of a house in Doddington on Saturday morning after attending an all-night party.

Dressed in shorts and flip-flops he tried to walk away from officers, and was taken to the floor and handcuffed before being arrested.

At Fenland Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, the 35-year-old company director, who runs Property Express in March, admitted being drunk in Oaktree Close just after 9am on Saturday.

He was given a one-year conditional discharge and must pay £55 costs.

Nicola Ebbs, prosecuting, said police arriving on the scene spoke to a man about an all-night party in Oaktree Close, and discovered there had been a heated argument.

Kerbey, of Dagless Way, March, staggered out of the property, and at first he ignored police who tried to speak to him.

After giving his details, Kerbey said he wanted to be left alone. He smelled of alcohol and his speech was slurred. He said there had been a party, and he had been drinking since the previous evening.

Andrew Spence, mitigating, said Kerbey had been to a ball with his partner and some friends, and when the ball ended in the early hours of the morning, they returned to Oaktree Close to continue the party, and continue drinking.

At 7.30am Kerbey had gone to bed, but was awakened by his partner, who asked him to intervene in an argument between their friends.

He went outside to placate the parties, and the police arrived.

"He was still drunk, he had just woken up and he was in an agitated state," said Mr Spence.

"He took exception to the fact that the police were interested in him, when he had tried to calm everyone down.
