A MAN who agreed to keep the peace for 12 months when he appeared before Blackburn magistrates breached the order less than 12 hours after his release.

The court heard Bradley Nicholson was released at 2.30pm and police were called to his parents' home in Leyland just after 4pm.

Nicholson, 31, of Leyland Lane, Leyland, admitted a breach of the peace and was bound over to keep the peace in the sum of £100 for 12 months. He was ordered to pay £100 for the breach of the previous order.

Tracy Yates, prosecuting, said Nicholson had been arrested over the weekend after causing a breach of the peace at his parents' home.

He was put before the court on Monday and agreed to be bound over to keep the peace.

"A few hours later there were three separate reports to the police of an ongoing disturbance in Leyland Lane," said Mrs Yates.

Nicholson had left by the time the police arrived but they were called again at 10.29pm and found him outside the house clearly drunk.

He was told to go and stay at a friend's house but officers remained in the area and when he came back 40 minutes later Nicholson was arrested.

Nicholson, who was not represented, apologised to the court.

He said he had gone back to his parents' home because he needed a change of clothes.
