A MAN who was cautioned by police because of his disorderly behaviour committed a similar offence on the same day.

Blackburn magistrates heard that prior to the incidents Jonathan Fletcher had no convictions to his name.

Fletcher, 22, of St Peter Street, Blackburn, pleaded guilty to using threatening behaviour. He was fined £80 and ordered to pay £85 costs and £30 victim surcharge.

Parveen Akhtar, prosecuting, said Fletcher had been given a caution on condition he kept out of trouble for three months.

"He was sent on his way but unfortunately did not manage 24 hours before he came to the attention of the police again," said Miss Akhtar.

She said Fletcher had been asked to leave Union House hostel on St Peter Street because of anti-social behaviour and the previous incident.

"When police arrived they found him in the back garden attempting to fight with the night staff who were there," said Miss Akhtar.

"The police decided enough was enough and charged him with the offence."

Waseem Choudhry, defending, said there had been a dispute between his client and another resident at the hostel which led to a scuffle.

"He was not being listened to and he became frustrated," said Mr Choudhry.

"It ios very unfortunate that he will now have a conviction against his name."
