A 20-year-old man from Broxtowe has been given a suspended prison sentence for carrying an offensive weapon.
Jae Wynter-Merrin, of Withern Road, was convicted at Nottingham Magistrates' Court after being found by officers carrying a kitchen knife in public on April 22.
A Nottinghamshire Police spokesperson said: "Officers were quickly on the scene following reports of a man threatening people and saw the knife being discarded.
"Wynter-Merrin was swiftly detained and the knife was recovered."
The court ordered the knife to be destroyed, a total of £350 to be paid in costs and fines, and 26 weeks of custody, suspended for 18 months, for Wynter-Merrin.
In addition, he must complete 25 hours of rehabilitation.
