Two men who behaved like they were “in the Wild West” have been jailed for a total of 26 months.
Marcin Bojczewski, 35, and 38-year-old Marek Brzozowky admitted to brandishing knives and a baseball bat during an altercation on Mansefield Road, Aberdeen last October.
They were charged with behaving in a “threatening or abusive machine which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm.”
Yesterday Aberdeen Sheriff court heard the pair repeatedly shouted, swore and uttered threats at each other while Inn the street.
Bojczewski confessed to arming himself with two knives and Brzozowky admitted brandishing the baseball bat while on bail regarding a previous offence.
Sheriff Jack Brown said that the incident could easily have been avoided.
He told Brzozowky: “You had the option open to you to simply walk away but instead you elected to to go to your car (and) take out this baseball bat in a public place.”
Sheriff Brown added: “I am satisfied that I would be failing in my public duty not imposing sentences for crimes of this nature.
“It is like they were in the Wild West.”
Brzozowsky, of Victoria Road, Aberdeen, was sentenced to 12 months behind bars, while Bojczewski, of Charlotte Street, Aberdeen, was given 14 months.
