Sheffield Magistrates’ Court heard on January 3 how Sukhminder Judge, aged 33, of Surtees Close, Maltby, Rotherham, shouted at Yorkshire Ambulance Service paramedics and tried to get in their ambulance to be with his poorly mum.

Kirsty Pearson told a previous hearing that paramedics had been attending to Judge’s mother who was having chest pains at his Premier store in Maltby.

However, Judge threatened to smash the ambulance if he was not allowed in, according to Mrs Pearson.

Judge, who suffers with anxiety, told police he had been worried and he admitted threatening to rip the ambulance doors off.

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

Judge was sentenced to a 12 month community order with 250 hours of unpaid work. He must pay £200 compensation and a £90 victim surcharge.
