Nuisance teenager’s gun gesture at police

A RAVENSTHORPE teenager made a gun gesture at armed police who confronted him in Huddersfield. 

Ian Muchmore, 19, had been banned from the town centre after a string of offences including urinating outside a supermarket and burgling a bakery.

But on September 17, the day after his appearance at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court, armed police were sent to St Peter’s Gardens on Byram Street following reports of two drunk men fighting.

When they arrived, Muchmore had his hands in his pockets. When asked to take his hands from his pockets, he made a gun gesture  towards the officers and was arrested.

Muchmore pleaded guilty to two charges of breaching a criminal behaviour order and was sentenced to 16 weeks in custody, suspended for one year. He was ordered to pay £85 costs and a £115 victim surcharge..

The court was told about a previous incident at Dewsbury job centre in which the defendant spat at staff and threatened them with a piece of masonry.
