Drunk Barrow man threatened officers with table leg

A REPEAT offender from Barrow who drunkenly brandished a table leg at police after drinking two pints of vodka and coke has been spared jail.

Adrian John Johnson, of Island Road, pleaded guilty to possession of an offensive weapon, in Barrow Crown Court on Monday.

The court heard Johnson, 25, had been at a family function where he drank two pints of vodka and coke on February 8.

Police were flagged down by a taxi driver in Duke Street, Barrow, and told there was a man on Michaelson Road and he was described as being drunk with a weapon.

They found him with a table leg with a three-inch metal screw which he brandished at police causing them to back away.

Mr Andrew Scott, defending, told the court Johnson has mental health issues and did not take his medication leading up to the incident.

Recorder Mr John Benson QC sentenced Johnson to 16 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months, and imposed a six-month curfew from 9pm to 6am, he was ordered to pay an £80 statutory surcharge.
