A DRUNK teenager who collapsed at the side of the road was hit with a fixed penalty notice after he became aggressive and tried to pick a fight with paramedics.

Emergency crews were called to Carr Mill Road in Billinge at about 8.40pm last Wednesday (June 22) following a report that a man had collapsed in the street.

When they arrived at the scene paramedics found an 18-year-old man lying down at the side of the road with his head buried in a section of shrubbery.

But, as the emergency team moved in to treat the teenager, he became aggressive and started trying to fight with the people who were there to help him.

A passer-by reported seeing paramedics having to stand back and leave the casualty prone at the side of the road while waiting for the police to arrive.

When officers arrived at the scene the man became aggressive towards them too and he was placed under arrest for being drunk and disorderly – a public order offence.

The teen was issued with a fixed penalty notice before being released.
