A 38-year-old man yelling and waving a butcher's knife on a busy Invercargill street was affected by alcohol and artificial cannabinoid K2, the Invercargill District Court was told yesterday.
Daniel William Stretch appeared before Judge Emma Smith in Invercargill District Court yesterday on three charges of behaving in a disorderly manner and one of possessing a knife in a public place on November 27 and December 9. He was sentenced to 100 hours' community work and fined $300.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Grant Gerken said Stretch was seen on Tweed St yelling and waving a butcher's knife in the air.
The road was extremely busy at the time. Police found two knives on him and when spoken to he was unco-operative, drunk and affected by K2. When he was released from custody the same day he yelled abuse outside the police station and police told him to move on. He became aggressive but walked away when he was warned he would be "sprayed", Mr Gerken said.
He was arrested after he adopted a fighting stance towards the officer and taken back to the station.
On December 9 he was observed outside a nightclub walking up and down the pavement raising his arms in the air and talking to himself, Mr Gerken said.
When spoken to by police he said he had been drinking and taking K2.
