Drunk man took to silence when police arrived

haverfordwest-magistratesA HOLIDAY maker who trespassed on a railway line was fined £1690 by Haverfordwest Magistrates on Tuesday. Jonathan Dyment, aged 33, of Cymmer, Port Talbot, pleaded guilty to trespassing and using threatening words and behaviour. Dyment was also placed on a community order for 24 months with one requirement of a thinking skills program. Prosecuting, Ellie Morgan said: “The facts of the case are agreed. On September 8, the defendant and his partner were on holiday on Tenby. At 7.15pm the defendant was issued with a notice from the police to leave Tenby because of his drunken behaviour.

At 9pm CCTV located Dyment and his girlfriend awaiting the train. Dyment is captured moving around the platform. At 9.17 he is captured lowering himself off the platform but he was pulled back to the platform after several minutes. He sat on the edge of the platform but the girlfriend again pulled him back. At 9.30 he lowered himself down on to the tracks and he has stood between the two sets of rails. He was there for a minute before he got back on to the platform.

“The train came in five minutes later. They are both seen to board the train and the driver spoke to the train guard about the two of them and told him to keep an eye on them. The guard has gone to speak to the couple and at this point Dyment said to his partner: ‘Give him the f***ing tickets you fat slag’. The guard spoke to Dyment but he then said: ‘f*** off, it’s my missus, I’ll f***ing do you’ but he has then immediately apologised. The guard asked his partner if she wanted to sit with him for safety but Dyment said: ‘Don’t you f***ing dare’.

“The guard has then gone back to the cab to use the phone and he can see Dyment trying to grab at his partner across the table. He has then poured beer on the carriage floor and his partner moved seats away from him but he followed her down. The guard has come back but Dyment shouted at him: ‘I’ve told you, f***ing go now, it’s your last chance’. His partner was upset and asked if there was another train she could catch. “The driver has then moved out and Dyment shouted: ‘I f***ing told you, that’s it. You’re both here, you can both have it’.

His fists were clenched and he was walking up and down the train. He then said: ‘when he comes in here, he’s having it in the f***ing neck’. The guard has again telephoned the police and at this point Dyment has picked up a beer can and ripped it in half. He was flailing his arms around and his partner told him to calm down. He has then started cutting himself with the cans. Police then arrived at the station in Narberth and when he saw them he sat down and went quiet.

He said to them: ‘I haven’t done anything domestic, I’ll admit to public order offences, I was all rawrhh’. The train was delayed for 76 minutes and as a result three further trains were delayed and costs for compensation of £1335 have been made for Arriva Trains Wales.” Defending, Mark Layton said: “I wasn’t aware an application was made for compensation for the delay of the train and I would certainly wish to see it to challenge it.

There are many other reasons why the train could have been delayed, for example signal error or weather. The guards on the train that were subjected to that, I would add, are fully entitled to compensation.” Ellie Morgan told Mr Layton that the compensation claim was worked out using a work related formula but Mr Layton said that this was ‘very speculative and difficult to work out’.

The chairman of the bench said: “Your behaviour on that evening was unacceptable. You caused fear to your partner and the guard and the driver.” Dyment was ordered to pay the full compensation amount of £1335 and also £100 in compensation to the train guard and driver. He was also ordered to pay £85 in court costs, a £10 fine to go with his community order and a £60 victim surcharge.
