CCTV footage captures the incident which happened in front of other passengers
A jobless man who slapped an inspector on a tram full of passengers, which was caught on CCTV, has been jailed at Nottingham Crown Court.
The fare dodger, Mr Orion Hunter, aged 35, had not long been freed from prison and when detained five days later, was found in possession of a knife.
Hunter was asked on the tram to show his ticket by the inspector but did not provide one. He had an invalid ticket which the inspector confiscated and this made Hunter angry, which is when he slapped the inspector, causing him to suffer from injuries as a result of his actions.
The CCTV footage shown in court shows the incident happening in front of a tram full of passengers.
When the tram stopped, Hunter got off and pushed another tram worker that was stood on the platform, luckily he was unharmed.
Hunter apparently said to the second tram worker: “I am sorry I hit your mate.”
The incident happened when the tram was at Goldsmith Street on Thursday, December 29 last year.
Hunter pleaded guilty to two counts of assault – for beating and for having a knife in a public place. He was given a 22-week prison sentence and ordered to pay £500 costs, as the inspector suffered damage to his teeth during the assault.
Hunter was not in possession of the knife whilst on the tram but was found on him when he was arrested and searched on February 3, on Highbury Road.

The club has now installed 35 CCTV cameras around the pitch
A Nottingham football club has had to install CCTV cameras around the pitch to try and tackle the big problem of dog mess, which is left by ‘irresponsible’ dog owners.
The club has now installed 35 CCTV cameras around the pitch in a bid to crackdown on pet mess.
According to members of staff, they have to spend around two hours every day clearing up dog mess from the pitches, filling up about half a bucket per day.
The pitches are used each weekend, with 290 children attending, so the club chairman, Chris Munroe, said action needed to be taken.
The dog mess problem at the Mill Street Playing Field, in Greenwich Avenue, Basford, is getting much worse and the ground is used each day, with children of five-years-old attending at the weekends.
The club has now had 35 CCTV cameras installed around the ground in the hope of catching the irresponsible dog owners. The CCTV footage can be sent to the dog wardens, who can hand out £50 fixed penalty notices to any culprits caught out by the CCTV cameras.
Extra bins will also be installed around the ground to encourage dog owners to dispose of their dogs’ mess correctly.
“It’s a lovely little ground. It’s a nice environment for dog walkers because the river is next to it. The majority do clean up their dogs’ mess, I’m sure but there is a minority who are spoiling it for everyone,” said Mr Munroe.

CCTV images have been released of two men the police would like to speak to.
Businesses in Nottingham city centre have been targeted by the thieves, who check the premises out whilst posing as officers, then return at night to steal cash.
The police are informing businesses that this is not a genuine police operation. Any managers or shop owners who receive a visit from someone posing as a police officer and asking to look around the building should say ‘no’ and call the police immediately on 101.
The Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID), issued the warning to all businesses on behalf of the police.

CCTV cameras capture the moment a car with its handbrake left off ends up in a neighbour’s hedge
CCTV cameras installed at a house on a street in Nottingham, have captured the moment a car with its handbrake left off has took on a life of its own and run into one of the neighbour’s hedge.
The incident was captured via CCTV cameras on a residential street in Arnold, Nottingham and looked as though it all happened in slow-motion.
On Sunday afternoon, January 15, the car was parked up on Bagnall Avenue, however because the handbrake had been left off, the vehicle ended up rolling its way onto Orchard Grove.
It’s driverless journey was rather graceful and amazingly trouble free, missing two other vehicles without leaving a mark on either of them, eventually stopping thanks to a neighbour’s hedge.
The CCTV footage which captured the whole incident was via cameras installed on the front of a house on Orchard Grove.
Daniel Goslawski, aged 34, said that he never noticed anything at first until some of his friends turned up and said a car had parked in front of his house.
The travelling car’s handbrake had been left off and rolled its way in between Mr Goslawski’s Ford Focus estate and his Ford Mondeo. Luckily the Focus estate wasn’t parked in its usual spot, otherwise the visiting car would have struck it.
It turned out the travelling car belonged to someone visiting a property on Bagnall Street.
Mr Goslawski made contact with the owners of the car but as only a bit of damage to his fence was caused, no claim had to be made.
“It was lucky for me – but also lucky for him!” added Mr Goslawski.

CCTV cameras capture the man swinging punches at people outside the pub
A man has been captured on CCTV throwing punches outside a pub in Nottingham after being refused entry.
The sous chef has admitted in court that when he goes out drinking he goes over the top and doesn’t know when to stop.
Joshua Hegarty, aged 24 from St Alban’s Road, Arnold, in Nottingham claimed to have changed his life around.
The incident happened outside the Blue Bell Inn on December 15, on Forman Street, Nottingham. Police arrived at the scene after receiving reports that Hegarty had been acting aggressively outside the pub shortly after midnight. He refused to leave and threatened to “twist them up”.
Nottingham Magistrates Court was told how Hegarty had been caught on CCTV swinging punches around outside the pub at anybody passing by, luckily none of them managed to engage. He was seen acting in an aggressive manner with the staff on the door.
The police arrested Hegarty, who struggled and attempted to headbutt a police officer and started kicking out.
Whilst being interviewed later on, Hegarty said he couldn’t remember anything because he was too drunk and didn’t know he had swung punches at people and acted aggressively.
He pleaded guilty to threatening behaviour and was put on probation for 18 months. Hegarty was also made to carry out 200 hours of unpaid community work and has to pay £85 prosecution costs and the same in surcharge fees.
According to a probation report, Hegarty accepted responsibility for the offence and had “a change of lifestyle”, after other appearances in court.
Hegarty was told by the presiding magistrate, Keith Hollingsworth: “We are showing a bit of faith in you. We want a bit of faith back.”

The manager was sacked after the incident was captured on CCTV
A female hotel guest from Nottingham was left horrified after discovering the manager of the hotel leering at her through the glass window to her room as she was getting changed – he was however caught in the act by CCTV cameras and sacked.
Twenty-seven year-old married mother of two, Clare Day, who works as a sales representative, was naked as she walked from room to room in her suite. She then saw a man’s face “pressed against the glass”, screamed and covered herself up.
She recognised the man as being the manager of Walworth Castle, Darlington as he had been the one to check her in when she arrived.
Mrs Day called her husband, then her boss but when neither of them answered she called the reception desk. Mrs Day claims they told her to lock her door and report what happened in the morning.
“I saw his face through the reflection of the bathroom mirror, it was like something out of a horror film,” said Mrs Day.
She added: “I felt totally violated and sick to my stomach. It felt like he targeted me knowing I was alone.”
In the morning, Mrs Day did report the incident to a staff member who said they would look at CCTV footage.
The whole incident was luckily caught on CCTV and the manager was sacked from his position at the hotel. He was arrested on suspicion of voyeurism but was later relased with just a caution.
Mrs Day says the hotel offered her compensation by way of a free night’s stay.
For work reasons, Mrs Day stays regularly at Best Western hotels and has done so for the past two years. However, it was the first time Clare had stayed at this particular hotel, which was on October 26.
The hotel handed the CCTV footage over to Durham police. The manager, believed to be in his thirties, was arrested on suspicion of voyeurism but because it was a first-time offence, he was released with a caution.

CCTV cameras from nearby store help jail Yankee Candle crook
CCTV cameras located at a nearby store have help to capture a prolific crook, after he was caught smashing and grabbing from a Nottinghamshire shop door before making off with over £1,000 worth of Yankee Candles.
The Yankee Candle is extremely popular and available in all different sizes and scents and can be purchased along with many other candle accessories. The Yankee Candle Company was founded 47 years ago by Michael Kittredge from Massachusetts and their products are now sold online and in gift shops in around 50 countries across the world.
Lee Barratt, aged 35, from Caledonian Road, Retford, used a hammer to smash through the front door of the Clinton’s card shop in Nottingham sometime during the night between July 1 and July 2. He then grabbed some of the popular scented candles and ran away.
Police managed to capture Barratt after he left the hammer with his DNA on in the store, on the counter and from CCTV images captured by a nearby shop, which show him running away from the card shop with another man.
He was arrested on July 3 after police managed to track down another burglar who ran away from the same store carrying a bag. Barrett was found at the address on Watson Road, Worksop, along with a large number of the candles.
Barrett denied stealing the candles at first but in court he changed his plea to guilty and was given an eight month sentence. However, a further eight weeks were added because he was already serving a suspended prison sentence at the time of the robbery.
He already has 33 convictions for 84 offences, 43 of which are for theft and similar offences.
