Two men fined over street brawl in Market Rasen
Two men were involved in street violence in the centre of Market Rasen, a court heard.
Police were called to the Waverley Court area after Heath Murdoch was seen brandishing an iron bar.
A witness saw Murdoch then being attacked by Ashley Sanders. Lisa Hardy, prosecuting, told Lincoln Crown Court "The witness saw Sanders run towards Murdoch. The men started fighting and punches were thrown."
When officers arrived Sanders became aggressive when attempts were made to arrest him. Miss Hardy said "He was abusive. He appeared to be wound up and tense.
"The officers formed the view that he was drunk. It took three officers to arrest him. When he was finally put into the police van he was violent.
"He was behaving in an unpredictable way. His parents were called to the scene. His father was telling the police officers to take his son away because of his behaviour."
Murdoch suffered two black eyes and cuts and grazes. Sanders had cuts to his hands.
Heath Murdoch, 44, of Waverley Court, Market Rasen, and Ashley Sanders, 22, of Waterloo Street, Market Rasen, each admitted affray on July 7. Sanders also admitted obstructing a police officer in the execution of his duty and possession of a small amount of cannabis found on him.
