Man menaces cops with didgeridoo

'Come on then. I'll have you', shouts musical perp

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

A man was today sentenced to 180 hours' community service for threatening police with a didgeridoo after shouting: "Come on then. I'll have you," in the traditional British style.

According to UK tabloid the Sun, officers were called to the scene of an alleged assault in Seaford, East Sussex, last June. Bricklayer Ryan Jones, 23, had attacked a friend who he believed had been up to no good with a previous girlfriend.

When the cops showed up they discovered Jones outside the house covered in blood. He immediately issued his shouted threat, rushed into the property and emerged brandishing his enormous Antipodean weapon like a “wild animal that had been caged, pacing around while watching the officers with his weapon raised in anticipation of striking out", as one copper later put it.

Jones was eventually subdued by a combination of pepper spray and wrestling to the ground. He required further pepper spray treatment at the police station.

Upon leaving the court today, Jones said: "I had only just started to learn to play the didgeridoo too." ®
