A jobless man has been jailed for 21 months after stealing wine from a Chesterfield shop and hitting a security man with a bottle.
Derby Crown Court heard last Wednesday, October 16, how the offence took place on April 5 only weeks after Darren Snowdon got a community order for other offences.
Judge Jonathan Gosling told him: “It was a serious mistake to have placed trust in you as the history over the last several months has shown.”
He added: “I am not going to do it again.”
An ASBO had previously been imposed on Snowdon, 29, formerly of Talbot Crescent, Hasland, Chesterfield.
He was previously convicted of the assault of two women.
Stuart Lody, prosecuting, said Snowdon went into the Chesterfield branch of Tesco on April 15 and stole two bottles of wine and he was seen by a security guard who asked him to return to the store.
Mr Lody added: “The defendant hit the guard in the face, causing a cut inside the mouth.
“He was generally revolting and abusive towards the police during transportation to the police station. He was extremely drunk.”
Snowdon pleaded guilty to theft and assault.
Roger Wilson, defending, told the court: “He has apologised for the harm to the security officer. It was not intentional harm.
He added: “He has had alcohol problems since his early teens.”
Snowdon was drunk and remembers little of the matter the court was told.
