A Douglas teenager admitted several charges following a serious disturbance.

18 year old David William Kelly appeared in court charged with affray, damaging property and assaulting a police officer with intent to resist arrest.

Officers were called to an address on Mona Drive in Douglas last Friday evening.

They found a smashed bench and heard screaming inside. A woman told them a man was trashing the place.

Kelly started shouting abuse and refused to calm down when he saw the police, and when an officer tried to place him in handcuffs he bit her trousers, narrowly missing her leg.

He urinated in a cell at Police Headquarters, causing £150 worth of damage.

Kelly said he couldn't remember anything as he had taken medication with cannabis.

His bail application was refused, and he'll appear for sentence on July 30th.
