Drug dealer attacked bouncer and threatened to stab police officers
A DRUG dealer who attacked a bouncer during a drunken night out in the town centre has been spared a jail sentence.
Jacob Brown punched and spat at a doorman outside FC2 nightclub before threatening to stab police officers while he was subject to a suspended sentence for dealing class A drugs.
But last week, a judge opted not to activate the 20-year-old’s suspended sentence and spared him from serving time in prison.
On Wednesday, April 4, Liverpool Crown Court heard that Brown had been ejected from the Barbauld Street nightclub at around 2.45am on Sunday, February 18, after being seen by door staff drunkenly ‘stumbling around’.
Brown, of Denver Drive, Chapelford, then tried to re-enter the premises after meeting friends outside.
He became aggressive and squared up to bouncers.
After punching a doorman to his left eye, Brown attempted to run away from the scene but tripped over a barrier.
Brown was apprehended by bouncers, and spat at the doorman he had punched while being restrained.
When Cheshire Police attended the scene, Brown asked officers if they had had sexual relations with his mum - who was present in court - before adding: “If you do that I’ll stab you.”
During an earlier court hearing at Warrington Magistrates Court last month, he admitted one count of assault in connection with the incident.
Brown's actions also put him in breach of a suspended 16-month prison sentence handed down at Manchester Crown Court last year for possession of class A drugs with intent to supply.
He had previously breached this sentence after being convicted of drunken and disorderly behaviour at Warrington Magistrates Court in November.
But recorder Eric Lamb opted not to activate the suspended sentence and instead extended it for a period of three months.
Brown, who is currently training to work in telesales, was also handed an additional 14-week prison sentence suspended for one year.
Sentencing, recorder Lamb said: "You were involved in a sustained assault, and this assault was against somebody who was carrying out their duty to maintain order in the area around the club.
"However it is heartening to hear the powerful points made on your behalf, in particular the efforts you are making to overcome your previous reliance on alcohol.
"This offending is so serious that only a custodial sentence is justified - that will be suspended for a period of 12 months.
"If you should commit any further offence with the next 12 months you may be ordered to serve part or all of this sentence."
Recorder Lamb also subjected Brown to a 10-day rehabilitation activity requirement and ordered him to pay a victim surcharge.

'True gentleman’ from St Matthew’s Church inspires next generation of choristers
MEMBERS of St Matthew’s Church Choir in Stretton will present a ‘true gentleman’ with a picture-perfect gift to mark his contribution to the community.
The group of choristers, who sing at the church on Stretton Road every Sunday morning, are putting together a special collage of photographs for Fred Owen, who retired at the beginning of this year at the age of 91.
The idea, led by fellow chorister Sue Fitzpatrick, will feature photographs of previous events the choir have been involved in over the years.
She said: “I am making the collage because I wanted to mark Fred’s contribution to the church over many years.
“I didn’t want to give a bought ornament or cake, I wanted something that would give him pleasure remembering the various choirs through the ages.”
Fred, who joined the choir at aged eight, has lived in Stretton for the duration of his life and attended The Old School, now The School House Bed and Breakfast, on Stretton Road.
Owens Corner roundabout, in Appleton, is named after Fred’s family, who owned a number of businesses on the north side of Acton Avenue during the early 1900s and while they are no longer there, the Owen name remains.
Fred and his wife Pat have been married for 62 years and have been an important part of the Church community for a number of years.
Nev Snodgrass, member of the St Matthew’s Church Choir, said: “I’ve sang and sat next to Fred in St Matthew’s Church Choir for more than 30 years and can honestly say he has been an inspiration to me and many others during this time.
“A true gentleman, always on time, very smartly dressed, with a kind word for everyone. While a quiet and reserved man, you could always clearly hear him singing out the bass line.”

Court success for college students
LAW students at a Great Sankey college proved to be the best bar none in a mock trial contest.
Youngsters from Barrow Hall College, fresh from making the final of the National Bar Mock Trial Competition heat at Liverpool Crown Court in December, faced Priestley College students in the magistrates competition at the combined courts on Legh Street in the town centre.
The law students had to present the prosecution and defence of a ‘possession of a bladed instrument’ case, with Barrow Hall College winning both rounds to take victory in the overall competition.
The team wowed the magistrates with their preparation and performance on the day so much so they were unable to choose between Hannah Ellison and Tom Baines, who presented the prosecution case, for the best student performance award.
Law teacher Rhianne Bond says she is 'exceptionally proud' of her students.

Call for more yellow lines on Lymm road
A PARISH councillor is asking for more double yellow lines to added to Pepper Street in Lymm due to traffic problems in the area.
Liberal Democrat Anna Fradgley and campaigner Joan Stocker are asking for double yellow lines to be painted on both sides of the road, as far as the entrance to The Rosebank Centre.
With a team of supporters they have knocked on all 360 houses in and around the Pepper Street ‘cul-de-sac’ asking residents to sign their petition.
Sixty per cent of households have been in when they called and support the proposal with only five objections.
Cllr Fradgley said, “Cars parked along Pepper Street cause an obstruction.
“It means that the street is narrowed down to one lane, which causes cars to back up onto Rectory Lane and Pepper Street.
“It is particularly a problem during the Ravenbank School run.
“Not only that, parents with buggies and wheel chair users have to move into the road, as they can’t get past the parked cars on the pavement.
“I have contacted Warrington Borough Council to increase the enforcement of cars illegally parked on the current single yellow lines, which have now been repainted.
“The restricted times are Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm and Saturday 8am to 1pm.
“I am astounded by the number of cars that park there during the day, after I worked hard to get the one hour free parking back and it is free on Sundays.
“The police are now more vigilant in the area, and will be booking cars that are illegally parked opposite the entrance to Pepper Street car park and cause an obstruction.
“Police advise the public to report illegal obstructions by calling 101 or emailing PC Chris Davies Christopher.Davies2@cheshire.pnn.police.uk.
“They must provide the time, date, registration number and preferably a photo. This also applies to illegal parking elsewhere in the village.”
Joan Stocker added “We are also asking Warrington Borough Council to review parking in and around Pepper Street. I know that there are many other areas in Lymm which also suffer from parking problems, so this is just the tip of the iceberg.”

Six-year-old boy donates his toys to children battling cancer
A SIX-year-old boy has donated his toys to children who are battling cancer.
Bruche Primary School pupil Jaxon Moores was inspired to help poorly youngsters at the Christie Hospital in Manchester following a conversation with his granddad.
The year two student even donated his ‘much-loved’ action figures to patients on the specialist cancer hospital’s children’s ward.
Jaxon’s teacher Catherine Hubball said: “After a discussion with his granddad about children less fortunate, he asked for help to get his much-loved action figures to children who needed cheering up.
“He went to the trouble of sterilising them and delivering them to the hospital.”
Now, Jaxon has been given the Seymour Drive school’s Eve Shepherd Award in recognition for his kind-hearted actions.
The award is handed out to Bruche Primary School pupil once per term in memory of former student Eve, who died suddenly at her home in Padgate in 2015 at the age of just 14.
Birchwood High School pupil Eve spent long periods of time in hospital herself, having undergone more than 200 operations during her short life.
Jaxon was presented the award by Eve’s dad Mark Shepherd on Wednesday, March 28.
Ms Hubball added: “Jaxon was presented with the Eve Shepherd Award for donating his toys to the children’s cancer ward at the Christie Hospital.
“He was chosen to receive this award as this was something Eve used to do, as she knew too well what it was like to have to spend long periods of time in hospital.
“We are very proud of him and we are sure Eve would be too.”
