Have your say

A MAN threatened to slit the throats of his mother and brother after an argument, a court heard.

Stephen Tame, of Mablethorpe Road, Portsmouth admitted using threatening or abusive words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court heard the 22-year-old went to his family home on May 24 but was asked to leave and made the threats outside. Magistrates imposed a 12-month conditional discharge. He must pay £40 costs, a £15 victim surcharge and a £150 courts charge. The court heard he has deep regrets.
