A BUILDER had to be threatened with a stun gun by police after he held a broken bottle to his neck.

Christopher Heyworth-Hill had repeatedly rung the incident bell at Blackpool police station beforehand.

Heyworth-Hill, 24, of Laverton Road, St Annes, admitted being drunk and disorderly.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said the defendant was seen outside Blackpool police station holding a broken bottle to his neck at about 7am on February 3. An officer drew his Taser and ordered the defendant to drop the bottle, which he did.

Heyworth-Hill, who had no previous convictions, said he did not normally drink, but it was his birthday weekend.

He was taking medication and later discovered it made you feel more drunk if you mixed it with alcohol.

The defendant was given a nine months conditional discharge and ordered to pay £50 costs and £15 victims’ surcharge by District Judge John Maxwell sitting at Blackpool Magistrates Court.
