A MAN who was “caught short” and was seen urinating in the street has been bound over to keep the peace.

Harry Robson, 26, was spotted by police relieving himself in Speculation Place, Concord, Washington, on December 6, Sunderland magistrates heard.

He had originally been charged with urinating in a public place, but that count was withdrawn.

Prosecutor Lee Poppett said: “Mr Robson hasn’t been before the court in excess of eight years and apologised to the police at the time.

“In these circumstances it would be appropriate for him to be bound over for a period of time.

Robson, of Coach Road, Estate, Usworth, agreed to be bound over to keep the peace for six months in the sum of £50.

Jason Smith, defending, said: “He was out on the night and was caught short.”
