Appearing before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday, Hulls was handed a 12-week custodial sentence.

Sergeant Sam Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We have received numerous complaints from members of the public about Hulls’ actions.

“Tackling anti-social behaviour is a key priority within neighbourhood policing as a whole and can take up large portions of officers’ time and resources.

“With this in mind, we’re extremely pleased to see that the courts have taken Hulls’ offending seriously and have handed him a custodial sentence.”
