A resident visited Boston’s police station and abused staff, before making false emergency calls, after being visited at his home by police officers, a court’s been told.
Darron Abbott, 55, of London Road, admitted to persistently making use of calling the emergency services to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety, when he appeared at Boston Magistrates Court.
Lee Shepherd, prosecuting said officers went to Mr Abbott’s registered address on November 20th on another matter. After they left, Mr Abbott went to Boston Police Station where made abusive comments to staff and refused to leave, demanding to see a senior police officer.
Mr Shepherd said Abbott eventually left and some time later, three 999 emergency calls were received by Lincolnshire Police, asking to speak to two particular CID officers and alleging he was ‘being screwed over’ by the force.
Mr Shepherd said Abbott threatened to go to the national press and also said that ‘someone will be killed’ and threatened to ram into people in his car. Abbott was found in his car and was arrested, at which point he complained he had not been told what he had been reported for and admitted he had threatened to kill someone.
Mitigating, Helen Coney said that leading up to this day, Abbott had been the victim of a number of criminal offences in which his vehicle had been damaged and a brick thrown at his house.
She said he had been ‘extremely stressed’ when he made the phone calls and had not been thinking with a clear head.
Abbott was fined £404 and ordered to pay £125 in court costs and charges.
