A NIGHT out in Blackburn proved to be a turn-off for driving instructor Steven Douglas Curley.

Blackburn magistrates heard that he was thrown out of a nightclub for falling asleep and ended up being arrested because of his behaviour outside.

Curley, 29, of Bold Street, Accrington, admitted a breach of the peace and was bound over in £50 to keep the peace for six months.

A charge of using threatening behaviour was withdrawn. Basharat Ditta, defending, said had come to Blackburn for a night out with friends.

"Clearly Jumpin Jacks was not jumping that night because he fell asleep inside," said Mr Ditta.

"The door staff were not impressed and escorted him out. He began to argue with them and accepts that he should have heeded the police advice to go home."
