A man aimed an air gun at two teenage boys and threatened them in a Driffield takeaway.
Benjamin Prince, 27, became involved in an argument with the boys in the Oasis takeaway on 15th October last year.
Claire Holmes, prosecuting at Hull Crown Court said the argument is said to have started when Prince allegedly touched the bottoms of two teenage girls.
Prince denied that allegation and no charges were brought against him.
Miss Holmes said following the row, Prince left for home and was followed by two boys, aged 15 and 16, who threatened him and his family.
Prince then fetched a “rusty air gun” from his garage and returned to the takeaway, where he brandished the weapon at the boys.
“He pointed at one of the boys, then the other,” said Miss Holmes. “He told one of the complainants, ‘I don’t like you. What are you grinning at’.
“He also said, ‘I’m going to pop you’ and ‘Don’t f*** with my family’.”
Prince pleaded guilty to one count of possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
Judge Mark Bury suspended a six-month prison sentence for 18 months and said: “The ordinary course for people who behave in this way is an immediate period of imprisonment. Regard yourself as extremely lucky.”
In addition to the suspended prison sentence, Prince was handed a 9pm to 5am curfew and ordered to pay £670 costs. He must also complete 30 days of rehabilitation.
