Discretion is the better part of valour!
   "He was picking on this chap - so I dotted him one," explained Thomas Lynch (26), of Victoria-street, Higher Ince, to the magistrates at Wigan today when he pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.
   PC Middleton said he received a 999 call and went to a public house in Manchester-road, Higher Ince, where there had been a fight between Lynch and another man.
   Lynch was drunk and using bad language, and when he refused to go home he was arrested.
   Lynch, who was fined 2, told the magistrates that there were a group of them in the hotel, and one member "kept picking on another."
   "I couldn't let him keep on, could I?" he asked.
   "You have to, in this world, if you want to keep out of trouble yourself," the Clerk, Mr. N. Tuite, told him.
