A yob has been jailed for seven months – after he threw a CAN outside a takeaway.
Kieron Robinson, 22, was caught on CCTV throwing a tinny at a man during an altercation outside a kebab shop.
He lunged forward to throw a punch but was held back, before another man punched the victim, Kiran Shanker.
Convicted drug dealer Robinson had been spared jail for an earlier offence of possession with intent to supply.
He was charged with threatening behaviour and denied it before magistrates.
But he was found guilty and appeared before a judge at Bristol Crown Court to be sentenced.
Prosecutor Matthew Jackson said that at his trial Robinson had conceded his intention was to scare Mr Shanker during the incident outside Salton’s kebab shop, Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset.
Susan Cavender, defending, said: “He behaved very stupidly.”
Judge Mark Horton told him: “You threw a can and used all your best endeavours to try and punch him. Someone used their powers to hold you back.
“Despite overwhelming evidence, you appeared before the lower court and fought it.”
Robinson was jailed for seven months after the judge activated five months of a previously suspended jail term, and slapped another two months on top.
