A woman has been put on probation for 12 months after admitting disorderly behaviour at the Commercial pub in Ramsey.

Caley Brown swore at staff and was asked to leave the bar due to her behaviour.

High Bailiff Jayne Hughes also banned Brown from entering licensed premises and buying or being sold alcohol for 12 months.

We previously reported how Brown was at the West Quay pub on June 1 at 11.45pm.

She was said to have got into an argument with bar staff over payment for drinks, which resulted in her swearing at them and being ushered out of the pub by the designated official.

Brown, who lives at The Bretney, Jurby, continued shouting and swearing in the curtilage of the property as she argued with a barman.

The barman was said to have offered some provocation which could be seen on CCTV footage, but Brown would not leave and was eventually arrested.

After being taken to police headquarters, during an interview, she said that she had given her bank card to a friend to buy drinks but had then checked online and saw that payment had not gone through.

She claimed that she thought something untoward was going on with bar staff and that had resulted in the argument.

She admitted that she had been asked to leave but then claimed she could not remember much.

Brown, who is 32, was already subject to a two-year suspended sentence, imposed in August 2020 for assaulting a police officer and disorderly behaviour on licensed premises, committed at the same pub.

Defence advocate Paul Glover said: ‘The prosecution did say that the barman hasn’t helped himself with his actions outside the Commercial but Ms Brown accepts she only has herself to blame.

‘This has been hanging over her for three months and she has been extremely fearful.

‘The probation report says she has engaged with the supervision order.’

Mr Glover asked the court to consider the article eight human rights of Brown’s children and said that she was receiving assistance from mental health services.

‘Ms Brown is still very much a work in progress,’ said the advocate.

‘She has learnt a very valuable lesson which she should have learnt the first time around.’

Mr Glover said that there would be no opposition to a licensing ban.

A probation report assessed Brown as a medium risk of harm to the public and of reoffending.

High Bailiff Mrs Hughes also ordered her to pay £125 prosecution costs which she will pay at a rate of £10 per week, deducted from benefits.
