A MAN who threatened to ‘rearrange’ a train conductor’s face has been jailed for eight months.

Cassel Shallow, 35, of Dean Close, London, bought a ticket at Ipswich station to travel to Manningtree on October 2.

But when the train passed Manningtree, a ticket inspector told Shallow he would have to buy another ticket and he became aggressive.

Ipswich Crown Court heard British Transport Police were called to Colchester station and a search of his rucksack revealed a broken kitchen knife, a metal throwing cardand £110 worth of cannabis.

Shallow admitted at Colchester Magistrates’ Court two charges of possessing an offensive weapon and possession of class B drugs. He denied using threatening words but was convicted at trial.

He was sentenced to eight months in jail for each count of possessing an offensive weapon in a public place, the sentences are to run concurrently.
