A TEENAGER was arrested in his slippers after smoking cannabis outside his home, a court was told.
Zohaib Chaudhry, 18, then became abusive when police challenged him as they passed on their bicycles.
He admitted charges of possession of a class B drug and threatening behaviour.
Kirklees magistrates were told that on October 3 Chaudhry was stood outside his Crosland Moor home.
He was puffing on a cannabis joint when police cycled past his address on Dryclough Road.
Linda Fowler, prosecuting, said: “They saw the defendant smoking a cigarette and thought that they could smell cannabis.
“He was asked to hand over the cigarette but continued smoking. He then placed his cigarette behind his back.”
When the officers continued to challenge Chaudhry, he became abusive .
Mrs Fowler said: “They tried to arrest him but he resisted them putting handcuffs on him.
“He called one of the officers a ‘f****** little idiot’. He said: ‘You’re arresting me for a spliff’.
Magistrates were told that Chaudhry was last in court in December after driving whilst disqualified.
Steven Brocklehurst, mitigating, said that at the time his client was stressed because he was facing court for several offences.
He said: “He was under some pressure. He had just stepped out of his house to smoke a joint, he was wearing his slippers.
“He apologises for his language used to officers, it was completely unacceptable.”
Magistrates gave Chaudhry a conditional discharge for 12 months.
They told him to pay £15 victim surcharge and made an order for the destruction of the cannabis.
