A neighbour from hell who boasted he was a 'mad man' and angrily threatened to set fire to a man's house and kill him has been told he needs to be 'squeaky clean' or face jail.

Heavy-drinking bully Dane Parr had 14 separate offences of being drunk and disorderly but was now in the 'last chance saloon' or he could be jailed, Hull Crown Court heard

Parr, 38, of Havelock Crescent, Bridlington deliberately made noise to disturb others, claimed that he 'owned the street' and warned a worried neighbour that he was "dead" and that he would stamp on his head.

The dad-of-five admitted harassment and using threatening words or behaviour.

Stephen Welch, prosecuting, said there was a disturbance to neighbours on October 21 when Parr was outside his door between 2.30am and 6am kicking it and shouting.

A neighbour in Havelock Crescent was in bed at 9pm on November 10 when he heard Parr shouting that he was going to set fire to the man's house.

Parr shouted: "Come out of the house. I am going to kill you."

Another neighbour challenged Parr, who told him that he "owned the street".

The police arrived and Parr ran back inside his home.

He was arrested and taken in handcuffs to a police van but, even after being warned about his antics, he continued to shout threats to the first man, saying that he was going to stamp on his head, he was going to get him and that he was dead.

Parr had convictions for 82 previous offences, including 14 of being drunk and disorderly, and two others of assaulting police in 2005 and 2017.

Cathy Kioko-Gilligan, mitigating, said that Parr lost his job "when the pandemic struck" and he returned to drinking.

"It's clear that he has long-standing issues with alcohol," said Miss Kioko-Gilligan.

"As a result of that, he commits offences and he knows full well that he must address his alcohol misuse."

Parr had a "long-suffering partner" and they had five children aged 18 years to 14 months.

Judge Mark Bury said: "He is making his neighbour's life a misery."

He told Parr: "The problem you have got is that you drink too much and, when you get drunk, you behave badly."

Parr was given a 10-month suspended prison sentence, 120 hours' unpaid work, 15 days' rehabilitation and a five-year restraining order banning him from being troublesome to the neighbours.
