Barrow man fled police in fear of being sent to prison

A 21-YEAR-OLD Barrow man who ran away from police because he thought he would be jailed again when they tried to question him has been fined.

Reece Michael Fell appeared before Furness Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

He admitted obstructing or resisting a constable in the execution of their duty on January 30. Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, said: “Police were called to the defendant’s mother’s house in Kendal Croft. They had wanted to speak to him in relation to another alleged matter. He was led from the house and put in a van. He was searched and police saw something in his pocket and asked what it was.

“He then ran off. He told police he had fled because he was scared as he was on licence until November and thought he could be sent back to prison.”

Mr Michael Graham, defending, said: “He had a disagreement with his mother and when he was in the police vehicle he just ran off.

“He has apologised for the problems he created but it was just that he was scared of going back into custody.”

Presiding magistrate Mr Bob Fletcher said: “You get in the slightest trouble and it will lead to proceedings such as this.”

Fell, of Chichester Place, was fined £110, court costs of £50 and a victim surcharge of £20.
