Beggar tried to get to Eastwood, ended up in court
A man was left with a £130 legal bill after a court heard that he was begging on city streets.
Nottingham magistrates were told that Daniel Warren, 34, was initially seen by a policeman and could be heard talking to passers-by on Barker Gate.
Margaret Martin, prosecuting, said the officer noted Warren saying: "I am sorry to bother you. Can you give me some change?"
He was thought to have approached up to a dozen people in the street.
Later Warren went up to someone else and said: "I am not a beggar. Can you spare me some change to get to Eastwood?"
