Man who threatened police to pay £270
3:20pm Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
A MAN pleaded guilty to threatening a police officer while on a night out in Evesham.
Gregory Artis from Larkspur Drive, Evesham, appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court charged with using threatening behaviour with intent to cause fear of or provoke unlawful violence.
Kerry Brookes, prosecuting, said 21-year-old Artis made the police officer believe he was going to hurt him after he spotted him talking to his friend.
“He shouted ‘You’re not arresting him’ and began to walk towards the officer approaching in an aggressive manner and described as ‘bouncing around’ with his hands up ready to fight the officer saying ‘Come on, arrest me. Then I will fight you’,” she said.
Kate Oliver, defending, said Artis did not think the police should have been talking to his friend and were putting their hands on him.
District Judge Nigel Cadbury fined him £165 plus costs of £85 and a £20 victim surcharge.“This was an incident that occurred in the street in a public place at night,” he said. “You did go the wrong way about it.”
