Buttner, whose mother had travelled from Poland to attend the hearing in person, was charged with outraging public decency, as well as possession of cannabis and criminal damage after spitting in a police cell and chucking food around the police yard.
The defendant, who required a Polish interpreter, had previously denied the charges but changed his pleas and was sentenced at court this week.And people wonder why the high street is dying...
Ronald Buttner was given a conditional discharge following claims his actions were as much down to mental health conditions as the quantity of alcohol he had drunk and the cannabis found in his pockets.Are you nuts? Here's a get out of jail free card!
Ania Grudzinska, mitigating, told the court he did not want to upset anyone and was just trying to get the attention of police.I'm actually amazed he succeeded!
