Mrs Pearson added that the paramedics had placed the woman into the ambulance when the defendant approached one of them to get into the back of the vehicle but he was asked to wait outside.

However, Judge opened a door of the ambulance, according to Mrs Pearson, and he said: “This is my mother. She gave birth to me and I have seen her naked.”

Mrs Pearson added that the defendant insisted he had a right to be inside and he threatened to smash the ambulance if he was not allowed in the vehicle.

One of the paramedics pressed an alarm and the defendant told him to move away from his shop and as they moved away the patient told them her son has anger issues.

Both paramedics stated that they had been afraid of what the defendant might have done.

Judge told police he had been very worried about his mother and he had become “too heated” and he admitted threatening to rip the ambulance doors off and to telling the paramedics to get away from his shop.

The defendant pleaded guilty to two counts of using threatening behaviour concerning each of the paramedics after the incident on November 10.

Defence solicitor Mark Bates said: “He accepts entirely that hs behaviour was unacceptable and there was no question about that. A gross over-reaction.”

Mr Bates also said that Judge suffers with anxiety and separation issues with his mother and he has received counselling.

Magistrates adjourned the case to consider a probation report before sentencing on January 3.
