Blackpool Magistrates Court

A man lost his temper after another man followed him around and took photographs of him a court was told.

John Robinson, 23, of Quebec Avenue, Bispham, pleaded guilty to threatening behaviour.

He says the other man has been following him around for eight to nine months and taking pictures of him

He was sentenced to do 100 hours unpaid work for the community and pay £85 costs with £85 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Prosecutor, Martine Connah, said a witness on Low Moor Road, Bispham, heard Robinson shout at another man “one day I’m going to get you” on May 6 at 2.45pm

Robinson was then seen chasing the other man and throwing punches at him. There were young and elderly people about and Robinson swore repeatedly.

Brett Chappell, defending, told magistrates: “He says the other man has been following him around for eight to nine months and taking pictures of him. He says he had had it and took it upon himself to have words with the man.”
