A woman is said to be “profoundly embarrassed” of being caught urinating on the shop floor of a Llanelli supermarket.
At 9pm that evening 40-year-old Warner entered a branch of Aldi on Swanfield Place. The shop’s security guard noticed Warner was speaking very loudly on the phone and swearing.
“She was doing her shopping but she was also approaching other shoppers and asking them to speak down the phone. She was clearly being a nuisance,” prosecutor Ellie Morgan told Llanelli Magistrates Court.
The security guard followed Warner into another aisle and witnessed her leaning over and urinating through her clothes onto the shop floor.
She then walked over to a cashier but was refused when she tried to buy alcohol because she appeared to be intoxicated.
As the rest of her items were scanned, Warner became verbally abusive so she was told to leave the store.
Her shouting continued outside the shop until police arrived. Officers said that she was clearly drunk and carried on swearing, despite being warned, resulting in her eventual arrest.
Mrs Morgan said: “The large wet patch on the front of her clothing matched the description given by staff.”
Defending Warner, Steve Lloyd said that she had been working through several issues and had been taking medication.
“She says she didn’t have a vast quantity to drink but alcohol with her medication isn’t a good combination,” he said.
“She is profoundly embarrassed but you will see that there are bizarre elements linked in with this.
“She apologises to you. She is very sad about her actions.”
Warner was fined £40 and ordered to pay court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £20.
