He returned to his flat and barricaded the door after they called the police and he was involved in a stand-off before he had to be Tasered twice, with police worried they would hit his colostomy bag.
The offence was committed during a campaign of public abuse after he defecated in a council office in protest his kitchen work tops had been mounted 8in too high for him to reach. Salter-Bromley exposed himself and spread excrement and urine in Hull's Wilson centre in the main reception and toilets and he was given an Asbo for a string of nuisance calls to emergency services.
Salter Bromley appeared for sentence at Hull Crown Court after admitting a charge of affray for threatening police in the Dalek stunt, possession of a knife in a public place and breach of his Asbo for threatening a woman on a bus with a bread knife when he thought children were making fun of his dwarfism. [...] Mr Brook said Mr Salter Bromley had to be sentenced for a disturbance on board a bus on September 9 when he produced the knife and began waving it about before telling one woman that "if he was going down for killing someone, she was going down with him". [...]
Defence barrister Paul Genney said the offences sounded worse than they were as his client was a lonely man with few friends who recently had his wheelchair stolen. [...]
"He said in the bus incident the woman admitted she had not felt threatened. The knife was only a butter knife, which was blunt and only slightly serrated," he said. "His physical state is poor. He once tried to kill himself and broke his back.
This man is a hero.
