The courthouse in Douglas

Have your say

A pensioner from Douglas who was fined £600 less than a month ago for pressing a two-foot long snake against a woman’s car window has been arrested again.

We reported in the Manx Independent on June 11, how Andrew John Fielding, aged 65, of Hutchinson Square, was convicted of provoking behaviour.

This time, Fielding approached an 18-year-old woman in the Villa Marina Gardens on June 21, and asked her: ‘If I show you something, do you promise not to scream?’
He then proceeded to show her the frightened woman the milk snake.

Fielding appeared in court today (Tuesday), where he pleaded guilty to a provoking behaviour charge.

He will be sentenced on August 4.
