A BANNED punter returned to a betting shop and threatened the manager.
At Truro Magistrates' Court, Stanley Jack Norman Good, 30, of Polruan Road, Malpas Estate, Truro, pleaded guilty to using threatening behaviour on June 14.
Graham Calderwood, for the prosecution, said that the day after Good was banned, he arrived at the Stan James Betting Shop in Back Quay at 7.45am, when the doors were still closed.
The female manager inside waved at him to go away, but he stayed around the shop and was still there at 3.30pm.

He tore a poster which was on the door when she told him she would call the police.
He swore at her and said: "You are going to pay for this. I am going to your house."
Good, who has previous convictions, admitted breaching a suspended sentence and conditional discharge.
Paul Simons, for the defence, said Good wanted to apologise and had sent in £4 to cover the cost of the poster. He had stopped taking his tranquillisers that day and was probably "bouncing off the walls and in an excitable state".
Good was given a community order for a year with an employment, training and education requirement and was fined £60 with £40 costs.
