UPPER HUTT COURT Man reportedly howled like a wolf A 54-year-old man howled like a wolf, stole a car, and choked a passenger with a seatbelt on the same night, Upper Hutt District Court was told last week. Philip David Jacomb, a self- employed engineer, appeared in court on two charges of assault, excess breath alcohol and unlawfully taking a motor vehicle. He represented himself in court and said he had no choice but to plead guilty. According to the police sum- mary, Jacomb rode his bike to The Glass House Bar on November 21. During the afternoon the bar manager was told that he was in the smokers area howling like a wolf''. Jacomb came back into the bar and continued this strange behav- iour, swearing, flailing his arms around and stretching up and placing his feet on the bar like a ballerina.'' He wanted to ride home, but the bar manager decided to take him in his own vehicle as he feared for Jacomb's safety. The police state- ment said he later vomited between the passenger's and driver's seat. Jacomb then became violent and and began punching the vic- tim. . .intheheadwithaclosed fist three to four times.'' He then reached over and pulled the seat belt around his victim's neck. The seatbelt was tight, causing him to go red in the face, however, he could still breathe.'' While the bar manager got out of the vehicle to help his passen- ger, Jacomb climbed through to the front seat and pushed him away. The police summary said this caused the manager to fall on to the road, and Jacomb accelerated away. He rolled on to the gutter to avoid being run over by the left rear wheel of the vehicle. Jacomb drove off in a northerly direction and up Mangaroa Hill Rd where he abandoned the vehicle, leaving the keys in the ignition.'' The driver received cuts and scrapes to his knees, hands and arms. Jacomb later told police he felt unwell and had asked the bar manager to pull over. He said they became upset with him after he vomited . . . He took the vehicle to get away from the situation,'' the summary said. Jacomb also appeared for driv- ing a motorised bicycle when he had an EBA level of 693 micro- grams per litre of breath on February 18. He said he felt he had already served his punishment and was having trouble finding work. Judge David Holderness said alcohol abuse appeared to be a sig- nificant factor. Jacomb was sentenced to five months' home detention and dis- qualified from driving for seven months. Party-goer sorry for hindering police Police were called to a party where people were fighting, yelling abuse and trespassing, the court was told. Last week Charles Thomas Morgan admitted hindering police. Prosecuting Sergeant Neill Ford said police went to Morgan's home on the evening of August 27. At . . . about midnight, police were called to the address after numerous reports of people fight- ing in the street and going on to neighbouring properties.'' Mr Ford said the party-goers were aged 15 to 20 and were all extremely intoxicated''. Morgan began shouting: f . . . off'' to police and waving his arms around in an agitated manner, while they attempted to calm the situation, the court was told. Defence counsel Ian Hard says Morgan wanted to apologise for his behaviour. He instructs me he can not remember much of the night.'' Judge David Holderness said Morgan had made things more difficult for police. You may not have behaved in this way if you had not been drinking.'' Morgan was sentenced to 40 hours of community work.
