Feral teenager Danny Smith attacked two guards at Canterbury Magistrates Court when he feared he wouldn’t be given bail.
The smirking Smith snarled: “If I get remanded for this...one of you is going to get!”
The 18-year-old then lashed out as he was being taken away – leaving one of the jailers with an eight-inch gash to his head.
"He turned to the jailers and told them: “If I am remanded for this then one of you two is going to get it. I am going to smash you up!”
“Your behaviour was quite appalling. You thrashed out, causing a serious injury to one of the guards" - Judge Heather Norton
The prosecutor said Mr Pollard needed stitches to his head wound and the effects from the attack “have been devastating.”
“He has not worked since and there is little likelihood he will return if at all. He is a broken man", she added.
Ian Bond, defending, said Smith, who admitted unlawful wounding and assault by beating, had led “a fairly feral lifestyle” and blamed his “abhorrent behaviour” on being poorly educated and suffering from ADHD.
Judge Heather Norton told him: “Your behaviour was quite appalling. You thrashed out, causing a serious injury to one of the guards.
“You thought that was funny and you bragged about it , but these guards were just doing their jobs", she added.
