They were called back again at 1am by the resident who had asked Ralphs to leave the property. Initially he refused but then when he did eventually leave he returned on several occasions to kick the door to try and get in.

When police arrived they took him into custody in the belief that he would continue going back to the property.

This week Ralphs appeared in court and promised to keep the peace.

He agreed to be bound over for six months to the sum of £100 meaning that if he breaches the peace again he will have to pay the full amount.
