Clubber threatens police
Court reports were ordered on a man who admitted threatening police on Front Street.
Police were contacted by the staff of a nightclub after Jamal Bascome, 33, refused to leave.
The officers approached Bascome, who insulted them.
He also told them: “I will f*** you up. I will kill you all. I’ve been locked up over 30 times and it wasn’t for nothing petty.”
The officers arrested Bascome and when he raised his arms they spotted a screwdriver stuck between his belt and the waistband of his pants.
He told police he had the item for his work.
Bascome, from Pembroke, was arrested and taken to Hamilton Police Station, but when he was taken to be searched he lashed out and attempted to kick the officers.
Bascome admitted threatening the officers, possession of an offensive weapon and obstructing police. The incident happened on February 7.
Magistrate Maxanne Anderson adjourned the case until next month for a social inquiry report.
