'Sex in pub' pair fined for threats
A couple who were pepper-sprayed by police after a barman caught them allegedly having sex in a pub toilet have been fined for using threatening behaviour.
Lee Hopps (30) and Hayley McClory (23) had been drinking in the middle of a breakdown in their relationship and their night out ended with her being carried semi-naked from the pub by police.
Newton Aycliffe Magistrates heard how police were called to the Wetherspoon's pub in Bishop Auckland after a customer reported seeing a man and a woman in a cubicle of the female toilets. When a member of staff went to investigate Hopps told him to "f*** off" and made threats.
