A dwarf was arrested, charged and convicted of making threats after threatening small children with a knife because they made fun of his size, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 55-year-old Ian Salter-Bromley of Hull, was sentenced to serve 9 months in jail.
Salter-Bromley, who claims that he is being bullied because of his size, brandished a knife in front of a bus with children because someone joked about his size.
Salter-Bromley said that he got into a dispute with someone on the bus before pulling out the knife.
At the time of his arrest near the bus, Salter-Bromley was out on bail after being accused of fighting at a housing complex.
The Hull Crown Court heard that Salter-Bromley threatened to kill one of the staff members of the housing complex.
When police arrived, Salter-Bromley barricaded himself in his apartment. The officers arrested him and found a long knife.
Salter-Bromley also threatened to kill an officer before holding the knife to his own throat. The officers fired a Taser at him twice because they feared for their welfare.
During the disturbance on the bus, Salter-Bromley produced a knife and started waving it around before threatening to kill someone.
A passenger managed to disarm Salter-Bromley, and he was arrested.
Salter-Bromley pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, possessing a knife in a public place and violating an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO).
He was sentenced to serve 9 months in prison.
