A MAN was arrested after failing to show up for court.
Sammy Askew, of Great Northern Street, appeared before Kirklees magistrates on Saturday.
Magistrates were told that the 36-year-old was made subject to a drugs rehabilitation requirement in November.
This was made for various offences, including breaching his Asbo, two thefts, failing to surrender to court and being found in an enclosed premises.
The bench heard that Askew had been due in court on January 3 for breaching his community order.
He did this when he failed to behave in an acceptable way with staff from the Lifeline service.
However, he didn’t attend on his date and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
When asked to provide an explanation for his absence, Askew replied: “I forgot about it totally, I’ve got a really bad memory.”
Magistrates adjourned his case until Thursday for him to attend the next breach court.
They released Askew on the condition that he reports to Huddersfield police station two days before this.
