SCALES OF JUS­TICE Drunk car­ry­ing blades told cops to ‘come ahead’

Evening Times - - NEWS -

A MAN car­ry­ing 11 blades told po­lice to “come ahead” and threat­ened to ‘take them both’ dur­ing a rammy in his garden.

An­thony An­der­son was seen in the front garden of his home on Drum­law Road on Fe­bru­ary 22 this year, shout­ing and swear­ing at mem­bers of the pub­lic.

A neigh­bour called the po­lice out of con­cern for the 55-year-old when she saw him in the com­mu­nal garden around 4pm.

An­der­son ap­peared this week at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court to be sen­tenced af­ter plead­ing guilty to fail­ing to dis­close the weapon, as­sault­ing two po­lice of­fi­cers and shout­ing and swear­ing in pub­lic.

The Procu­ra­tor Fis­cal told the court: “He ap­peared to be in­tox­i­cated and was shout­ing ‘f**k you’ to­wards ran­dom mem­bers of the pub­lic. Po­lice ob­served the ac­cused pac­ing back and forth.

“When they at­tempted to en­gage he be­came im­me­di­ately ag­gres­sive, shout­ing ‘f***ing come ahead, I’ll take yeez on’ and ‘do you want some of this? I’ll f ***ing take you both’.”

An­der­son also threw un­opened cans of Rockstar en­ergy drink at the of­fi­cers, which missed them. Even­tu­ally he had to be sprayed with PAVA spray – a more po­tent form of CS gas – which went into his eyes and face. When po­lice searched him they dis­cov­ered he was car­ry­ing 11 Stan­ley blades. He was there­after ar­rested.

Sher­iff Cameron de­ferred sen­tence for six months for progress re­ports.
