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.
