Burnley Magistrates Court heard how Alltree, of Eagle Street, Nelson, went in to a rage after Mr Williams had stopped him entering a roundabout by putting on the combined breaks (sic) during the test which started at 8am on February 9.
When Alltree realised it meant he had failed his test and words were exchanged between the defendant and Williams before the examiner asked him to pull up at the side of the road, the court heard. Alltree got out of the car, slamming the door and shouted at Mr Williams: "You would not have done that if you knew who I was."
Driving instructor Kenneth Spencer, who had been sat in the back of the car, got out to try and calm Alltree down. But magistrates were told Alltree shouted: "All I have to do is make one phone call and you are both dead. I will kill you."Just an everyday story of Lancashire folk...
Prosecuting, Tracy Yates said Alltree banged on the car and carried on driving expletives (sic) and when Mr Williams drove off back towards the driving test centre, leaving the defendant on the roadside. But Alltree chased after the car continuing to shout abuse.
At 8.50am Mr Williams and Mr Spencer heard knocking at the door of the test centre in Cobden Street. Colleagues noticed it was Alltree, who had walked back, and called the police.Wow. Mitigation is going to be....
....well, it's probably going to be the usual stuff, isn't it?
Defending, Graeme Parkinson said his client had anger management issues and also suffered from ADHD and dyslexia.Yup. Thought so.
He said his client accepts he had handled the situation badly but chased after the car and went to the test centre to retrieve his provisional licence which he was fearful of losing.
"But he said it wasn't until later he realised it had been in his jacket pocket throughout.
He said his client did not recall using any expletives but accepts he probably did.Dare I ask if it's his first offence?
Alltree, who is unemployed and cares full-time for his partner, has nine previous convictions for offences including assault, disorderly behaviour and dishonesty.
The case was adjourned until April 25 for a pre-sentence report and Alltree was given unconditional bail.*sighs*
The chairman of magistrates Mr Creelman said: "We have listened to carefully to what everybody has said and we take on board everything that we have heard, including your condition. This was clearly very shocking for the examiner.
"We are not ruling out any options when it comes to sentencing you."Bet you're ruling out the one I'd prefer.
