A 30-YEAR-old man who threatened to bite two police officers when they tried to arrest him has been dealt with by the courts.

Aaron Chapman, of Barden Avenue, Bradford, was in breach of an existing suspended sentence order, when he resisted officers in May last year, after they were called to a domestic incident.

He was similarly in breach when he was found in possession of a flick knife in June this year.

But Chapman avoided a jail sentence when he appeared before a judge at Bradford Crown Court.

After hearing the evidence, Judge Gibson agreed to allow an existing suspended sentence order, which was imposed last year for drugs offences, to continue, but added a further 20 hours of unpaid work to its terms.

In addition, he sentenced Chapman to six months in prison for possessing the knife, suspended for 18 months, with 60 hours of unpaid work and 20 rehabilitation activity days; as well as 12 days imprisonment suspended for 18 months and 20 rehabilitation activity days, for resisting a police officer.

This means he must now complete 80 hours of unpaid work in the community.
