A teenager punched a nurse and weed in A&E after smashing a bottle of gin on his own head during two day cocaine and Sambuca-fuelled rampage.
Ciaran Harrison was taken to hospital by police after he was found slurring his words and bleeding while trespassing in the garden of a council property.
The homeless 19-year-old appeared at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court after punching a nurse and another member of hospital staff when police left, the Liverpool Echo reports.
Harrison was ordered to pay compensation and spared jail after earlier admitting outraging public decency, criminal damage and assault of an emergency worker.
Andrew Page, prosecuting, said police were called by Liverpool city council as “a male was in the back garden of a social services property” and had “climbed onto a shed” on August 7.
He was escorted to the Royal Liverpool Hospital after he “smashed a bottle of gin on his head” which left a small cut and was seen lying on the floor “slurring his words” when police arrived.
Mr Page added the officers were called back to the hospital a short while later “due to his behaviour”.
He said: “He was roused by a nurse to conduct necessary checks.”
Harrison became aggressive, “pushing at her chest” and “punching her stomach”.

He then told the nurse he “needed to go to the toilet” but refused to wait for a bedpan to be brought.
Mr Page said: “He urinated on the floor and over the hospital bedsheet” leaving “staff feeling alarmed and distressed”.
He then punched another member of staff and was “lashing his arms” when police arrived and he was restrained and arrested.
The court heard Harrison told police the following morning that he remembered drinking “half a bottle of Sambuca” and having a “two-day cocaine binge”.

He said he had lost his mum three weeks before and did not remember the incident, but said he was sorry.
The nurse said she was “embarrassed” and “alarmed”, describing it as “totally unacceptable behaviour in a hospital A&E department”.
Andy Holliday, mitigating, asked the district judge to accept Harrison’s early guilty pleas and remorse.
District Judge James Hatton confirmed “it’s 100% custodial” and said “he’s punched a nurse for a start”.

He said:"You're in drunk and you've punched a nurse.
"You've then exposed yourself and caused to her a great deal of upset and anguish. It’s a disgraceful incident.
"I've taken into account the fact you have, relatively speaking, a limited record.

"I accept just prior to this you had lost your mother, I accept that has caused you to behave in a way you ordinarily wouldn’t."
The judge told Harrison “you should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself” but "I’m prepared to give you an opportunity” as he was handed a 26-week prison sentence suspended for two years.
Harrison must also complete 20 Rehabilitation Activity Requirement days and was ordered to complete 240 hours of unpaid work.
Judge Hatton also ordered him to pay £300 in compensation to his victim.
