Man apologizes for drunken nightclub outburst

A 26-year-old Slovakian man yesterday apologized for his drunken behavior at the Aura nightclub that caused his arrest.

Security at the nightclub called police after Matej Konopka, 26, kept harassing other club-goers around 2 a.m. yesterday, the prosecutor, Inspector Philip Davis, said.

Konopka, who did not have a lawyer, pleaded guilty to charges of disorderly behavior, resisting arrest and obscene language at his arraignment before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.

Konopka cursed the officers and told them not to touch him.

Konopka told the court, “I apologize for my behavior. I drank too much; I have never been in this situation before.”

Konopka paid fines totaling $1,175 to avoid spending three months in prison.
