Curfew order for Lye man who made threats while armed with a dog lead chain
10:53am Monday 12th May 2014 in News
A 23-YEAR-OLD Lye man was who was armed with a dog lead chain when he threatened a man after a dispute has been hit with a 12-week curfew order.
Simon Carr was also placed on Supervision for two years and told he must remain indoors between 7pm and 7am.
Wolverhampton Crown Court heard Carr was with an accomplice who was carrying a baseball bat when they told the other man to get out of his home.
Siobhan Collins, prosecuting, said the man was also told by Carr that if he did not come out of the property he would "stamp on his head".
Carr, of Stourbridge Road, admitted affray and Judge Martin Walsh ruled he was able to avoid sending him to prison because he had already spent a number of days on a curfew and in custody while on remand.
Jas Mann, defending, maintained Carr had no intention whatsoever of using the dog lead as a weapon during the course of the dispute.
