Daniel Hickenbottom was a passenger in a Range Rover which was stopped by two police officers on December 25 last year at around 5.40pm.

One of the officers tried to detain Hickenbottom who was abusive to him and he then ran off towards his home, in Chantry Avenue.

When the officers tried to get into the property, Wolverhampton Crown Court heard Hickenbottom continued to be abusive and threatened them, saying 'I will kick your head in'.

Other members of the family obstructed the officers, who couldn't gain access to a room the defendant had locked himself in, before he made his escape through the back door.
