An Ellesmere Port man who repeatedly called the emergency services and caused significant disruption to the public has been handed a criminal behaviour order for five years.
Adrian Karl Green, 41, had the order imposed on him by the courts following a number of incidents in a short space of time that required a considerable committal of resources across the three main emergency services.
On September 24 this year, he was arrested after climbing onto the roof of a building at the Countess of Chester Hospital, which caused major disruption to nearby roads and required a full evacuation of the Jubilee Day Centre. He eventually came down following contact with a police negotiator.
Three days later he contacted the emergency services whilst at Overpool Railway Station, again significantly impacting on resources.
Green appeared at Chester Magistrates Court on October 30 where he was convicted of the public order offence in relation to the hospital incident. At the same hearing, Cheshire police applied for a Criminal Behaviour Order that prohibits him from contacting the emergency services except in an emergency, from using threatening or intimidating language or behaviour in any public place or towards any person, and from climbing or threatening to climb on any building or structure, including an NHS premises.
PC Morrison, of Ellesmere Port’s Anti-Social behaviour Unit, said: “Despite numerous prosecutions and convictions, Green continued to place unnecessary and costly demand on emergency services and healthcare providers. In doing so he showed no regard for the welfare and safety of others. In the granting of this order we hope to see an end to the nuisance Green has caused within the communities of West Cheshire and in neighbouring police areas.”
