Man had stun gun on Race Course
A DRAINAGE worker has appeared in court and admitted possessing a stun gun following police calls to a disturbance on Beverley Race Course.
Richard Fisher, 46, admitted possession of a prohibited weapon capable of firing when he appeared before Recorder Mark McKone at Hull Crown Court on Monday February 18.
Mr Fisher is also charged with possession of a knuckle duster, a CS gas spray, and an extendable batton – all illegal weapons.
He is also accused of two charges of assault against Jamie Davies and Daryl Davies. It follows police calls to a disturbance with Mr Fisher on Beverley Race Course on December 1. Crown barrister Jane Bryan asked for the other charges not to be put to Mr Fisher at this stage. Defence barrister John Thackray said it was unlikely there would be a trial if agreement could be made on the charges.
Fisher of Hargrove Road, Harrogate, has been ordered by Beverley Magistrates to stay out of Beverley.
Recorder McKone ordered Mr Fisher to stand as he told him he would be given credit for his early guilty plea and he should return to Hull Crown Court on May 10 for the other charges to be put to him and the case possibly resolved.
