Alcoholic pulled out knife as paramedic tried to treat him
PATIENT John Williamson pulled out a knife as a paramedic tried to treat him on Boxing Day.
The 47-year-old had called an ambulance to his Cobridge home, but abused medical staff that had arrived to help him.
Magistrates at North Staffordshire Justice Centre heard paramedic Jonathan Blurton had been called out to Williamson’s home around 50 times before the incident on December 26.
Prosecutor Liz Rider said he was ‘loathe to attend without accompaniment because of previous issues’.
She told the court:
Mr Blurton arrived at 11.15pm. He was met by the defendant at the door. He said, ‘Move your ambulance’, and said the neighbours had been giving him grief that ambulances were always in the street.
