Grantham teen yelled abuse at police officers
A teenager shouted abuse at police officers called to an incident of criminal damage.
Kane Brackenbury appeared before magistrates on Monday charged with using threatening behaviour in Harlaxton Road, Grantham, on October 20. He admitted the charge.
Daniel Paulson, prosecuting, told the bench that police were called to Harlaxton Road after receiving reports of a window being broken. He said Brackenbury was not involved in the criminal damage incident.
Mr Paulson said: “Mr Brackenbury became abusive with officers and tried to prevent them taking away the person responsible for the criminal damage.”
The teen, of Lymn Court in Grantham, was told to leave by the officers but instead continued to be abusive, using bad language and saying “I will knock you out”.
Representing himself, Brackenbury told magistrates: “I’m sorry for my actions and for what I done and that.”
His mother also addressed the bench, telling magistrates her son suffers from ADHD.
She said: “He does have a lot of problems.
“This is what he does, he gets aggressive. He can’t help the things he does.”
Magistrates handed Brackenbury a six-month conditional discharge and ordered him to pay a £15 victim surcharge.
