A MOTHER pleaded with police to arrest her son after he was abusive to officers on a street, a court heard.

Jordan Rippon, 19, of Pendas Park, Penley, flew into a rage in Victoria Road, Wrexham, after a row with his girlfriend and police officers in a passing patrol stopped to see what the 'domestic' dispute was about.

Prosecutor Helen Hall told Wrexham Magistrates Court that Rippon was holding his arms out and hugging Lauren Wainwright and when he saw the police he started waving his arms about and shouted "f...off it's nothing to do with me".

The prosecutor said the teenager's mother, who was on the road at the time of the incident, called out: "Just lock him up and take him away as he will do something stupid when he is like this."

Rippon continued to protest and swore at an officer before kicking a bin over. He then nearly walked out in in front of a passing car before he was arrested.

Rippon admitted threatening behaviour on Victoria Road on October 8.

He told the court that he suffered from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Magistrates fined him £80 and told him to pay £85 costs and a victim surcharge of £25.
