Cumbrian teenager who threatened police officer spared jail

A teenager was spared prison after admitting threatening a police officer.

The charge related to an incident at the home of Kristopher Dean Alexander, 19, of Crown Terrace, Penrith, on March 28.

Carlisle Magistrates’ Court was told police received a call saying Alexander was on the roof with a knife and might harm himself.

When officers arrived, he shouted abuse at them and threatened to kill himself. It took almost two hours to coax Alexander down.

Martin McAlistair, defending, said Alexander had been a “dark mood” for some time, but had no intention of harming anyone else.

Alexander was sentenced to 18-weeks in custody, suspended for one year. He was placed on a 12-month community supervision order and ordered to pay £85 court costs and a victim’s surcharge of £80.
