A 21-year-old Blenheim man has admitted a charge of disorderly behaviour likely to cause violence.
Kevin Liam Sloan appeared in the Blenheim District Court yesterday.
Judge Tony Zohrab convicted Sloan, and sentenced him to six months supervision to address his issues with alcohol.
"You don't have a huge history, but there's certainly a smell of alcohol about it like there was in this case," he said.
The court heard that Sloan went to his former employer's house on April 12 about 6.20pm.
He was intoxicated and wanted to confront the man about being fired from his job. When his former boss pushed him, Sloan retaliated and the pair had a "tussle".
Sloan later turned himself into the Blenheim Police Station, saying he should not have gone to the house, but the complainant had pushed him first.
