A MAN was kicked out of his accommodation and landed in court after threatening to stab another resident.

Jonathan Nash, 54, of no fixed abode, was drunk when he told a receptionist at Fellowship House in Ryde that he was going to stab another resident, Vivian Ducie, prosecuting, told Isle of Wight magistrates.

When police arrived, Nash then said he would stab the officer.

On arrest, it turned out he did not have a knife on him, Nash's solicitor Barry Arnett said.

Mr Arnett said Nash never intended to harm anyone. He said Nash suffered with depression and anxiety and was alcohol dependent.

Admitting two charges of using threatening words or behaviour, Nash was fined £200 and ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £30 surcharge.
