Louis Tomlinson’s dad was found drunk in car park after contemplating suicide

Louis Tomlinson‘s estranged father was found drunk in a park in Doncaster after contemplating suicide, a court has heard.

Troy Austin appeared in Doncaster Magistrates’ Court facing a charge of failing to provide a breath test while being in charge of a car.

It was said officers were searching for the dad of the One Direction singer following concerns about his welfare.

He was found in Cantley Park, Doncaster, on August 18 standing next to a car he had reportedly borrowed.

He had drunk alcohol to “build up the courage to kill himself”, prosecutor Joanne Lewis-Crooks said.

She added: “Mr Austin’s behaviour was not particularly good. He was trying to injure himself.

“Attempts were made to get Mr Austin to provide a sample which he didn’t and a decision was made that Mr Austin should be taken to hospital due to concerns about injuries he had inflicted on himself.”
