A Tameside man who threatened to blow up police just like killer Dale Cregan has been handed a suspended jail sentence by Tameside magistrates.

Andrew Earith, 33, of Market Street, Hyde, appeared before the court to face three charges relating to an incident on April 3 this year.

He was charged with behaving in an indecent manner, making references to police killer Dale Creegan and threatening to blow up officers with a grenade.

He also made reference to the officers’ deceased colleagues, according to the charge showing a complete disregard for
humanity.

He was also charged with threatening or abusive behaviour, directed at two police officers, plus assaulting an officer in the execution of his duty.

He was given a six weeks jail sentence suspended for 12 months.

He was also ordered to pay £85 court costs and an £80 victim surcharge and must attend a treatment programme for alcohol dependency.
