Andrzej Morozinski, aged 45, was handed a twelve-month community order, ordered to complete up to seventeen days of rehabilitation activities and was made subject to a restraining order for three years, after he admitted possession of a prohibited weapon and putting a person in fear of violence. Following an argument with his ex-partner outside their sons’ school in Hull, East Yorkshire, Morozinski told the boys: "Do not worry boys, Dad has a gun and Mum's not going to be around much longer." After his ex-partner called police to report the threats, officers searched his home and discovered a pistol, inside which was a pepper spray cannister containing four noxious substances.
