Homeless man admits affray in connection with aerosol incident at Barnstaple pub
A Judge has ordered a psychiatric report on a homeless man who tried to set light to an aerosol canister at a Barnstaple pub.
Alan Aageson, 41, who comes from Barnstaple but has no current address, admitted affray at the Water Gate pub in The Strand during an incident on October 21 last year.
The Recorder of the City of Exeter Judge Francis Gilbert, QC, remanded him in custody and adjourned sentence for at least six weeks to allow the preparation of probation and psychiatric reports.
Aageson denied arson, being reckless whether life was endangered and attempted arson at the J D Wetherspoons pub.

Mr Terry Holder, prosecuting, said the Crown will not pursue those cases in the light of Aageson’s plea to affray and his problems with mental health.
Mr Nick Bradley, defending, said a psychiatric assessment would be of assistance to the sentencing judge.
No further details of the incident were given during the short hearing at Exeter Crown Court.
