A DRUNKEN wedding guest who rammed another motorist’s car and launched a foul-mouthed racist tirade after being told the party was over has been jailed.

Terence Shad, of Willingham Way, Colchester, had attended the celebration without any problems but was told at 10.30pm that there would be no further partying.

Other guests went back to their home in Bradwell but Shad wanted to carry on boozing and turned up on their doorstep.

They attempted to turn him away but he then became aggressive, racially abused someone at the house and then threatened to stab them.

During the course of the next few minutes, Shad was spotted with a metal pole, continued to threaten other people and then continuously rammed his Ford Focus into a BMW.

Police were called and Shad was arrested but made more vile threats to an officer about his family and eventually bit him on the thigh.

The 36-year-old was breathalysed but the readings were so disparate police wanted to do a blood test which he refused to participate in.

Shad was on bail at the time of the events in August for a road rage incident the previous September where he threatened a man after they got into an argument.

He admitted two counts of threatening behaviour – one of which was racially aggravated, criminal damage, possession of an offensive weapon, assaulting an emergency worked, failing to provide a specimen and driving without an MOT.

Addressing Judge David Turner QC at Chelmsford Crown Court he accepted he was now committed to turning his life around despite a difficult upbringing and had vowed never to drink again.

The prolific offender who has 23 convictions for 39 previous offences said: “For the first time in my life I have admitted it is me who has the problem.

“Prison will punish my children and I am a changed man now.”

Judge Turner said he felt sorry for Shad’s children but said he would be failing in his public duty if Shad was not jailed and handed down a 15 month prison term and 17 month driving ban.

He said that loutish behaviour had become his specialist subject.

“They were incredible antics in August,” he added.

“It is clear you completely lost your temper and the racial remarks were extremely unpleasant.”
