Good behaviour for police kill threat

A GEORGE Town teenager who threatened to kill a police officer has been given a good behaviour bond.

Dylan James Tobin, 18, pleaded guilty in the Launceston Magistrates Court yesterday to having threatened police.

Police prosecutor Natalie Clark told the court that police were called to a disturbance at a George Town house about 11.30pm on January 17 that had attracted onlookers.

She said that police saw an older woman motioning for police to come inside the house, while there was a blond male behind her who was shouting and screaming.

Police entered and Tobin looked at an officer and said, "I'm going to kill you, you c---."

Tobin, who represented himself, told the court he had consumed about 10 cups of "goon".

Magistrate Reg Marron ordered Tobin to be of good behaviour for 12 months, without conviction.
