A boozy groundworker from Mansfield was fined for punching a Subway sandwich board after he was asked to leave the cafe.
Kyle Robert Marsh, 26, of Ladybrook Lane, admitted causing £100 of criminal damage on April 3, outside the cafe on Leeming Street.
Melanie Hoffman, mitigating, said: “He doesn’t recall the night in question. He had gone out on an unexpected night out and hadn’t eaten.
“He offered to pay for the damage at the police station. He is very embarrassed by the way he has behaved.”
District Judge Jonathan Taaffe told Marsh: “You need to grow up. People in this country are tired of predominantly young men going out and getting themselves blitzed, to use the common parlance, and not complying with reasonable requests and then causing damage and violence, making many town centres no-go areas.
“You have a problem with drink. You may not think that but your record tells me you do.”
The court heard Marsh had a number of previous convictions for drunk and disorderly behaviour.
He was given a six week curfew from 8pm to 5am and told to pay £85 costs, compensation of £100 and a £60 victim surcharge.
