Emma Jones, representing Day, asked the judge to lift a restriction which effectively prevents Day from using Westcliff train station.
She said although Southend East is technically closer to his home, he was “concerned” about going there because of a recent incident. The judge said that if Day experienced problems he should “call the police”.
At this point Day, who was allowed to sit in the public gallery (Ed: ?) for the hearing, jumped to his feet and began shouting and swearing. He said: “They put a gun to my Mrs’ belly!”
He then attempted to leave the court and brushed past a security guard, causing the judge to shout: “Arrest that man!”At which point the police should have said 'You allowed this habitual criminal to leave the dock, where he should have been. You go arrest him!'
Who was the idiot judge, anyway?
In 2013, the Echo reported how a judge told Day “the picture is depressingly clear” after he admitted four counts of shoplifting.
His most recent conviction was for assault and using threatening behaviour towards three charity workers.
Judge Owen-Jones said: “I do see how he loses his temper in the twinkling of an eye. Even a judge making a comment produces the type of outburst that we have seen.
“My view is that it should be for an indefinite period.”His jail term, yes?
