A WASHING machine repair man called police after fearing for his safety in a pub – but ended up getting arrested himself.

Lee Henderson had been drinking in the King John’s Tavern, in South Road, Hartlepool, when he dialled 999 and said he was “being picked on”.

Prosecuting, Hartlepool Magistrates’ Court heard that a team of officers was sent to the pub just before 10pm.
