A grandfather who was spared jail after threatening bailiffs with a toy gun told how he has no regrets over his actions.
Danny Williamson, 55, armed himself with the metal replica Colt 45 revolver when two “laughing” enforcement agents banged on his door demanding money over an alleged speeding fine.I suppose some won't see the connection between 'spared jail' and 'given publicity' and 'no regrets', but I certainly do...
The carpenter, now of Redgrave Road, Basildon, said: “I don’t regret it because I was protecting my girlfriend’s property and my car.
“I got the gun because it is better than a knife. A knife can only cut you.
“They didn’t know the gun was an imitation, but that is the whole point. It looks realistic and would have been no use if they knew it was fake.
“They said in court they were petrified but they were both outside the house laughing on the phone.So you contend that being threatened with a gun is a joke?
“When the armed police arrived it was frightening.”I bet you weren't laughing then..
