COUNCIL chiefs have warned anyone attacking or abusing its wardens will face the courts after a banned driver was jailed for trying to punch one of them over a parking ticket.
Mohammed Shoaib, 23, swung his fist at Council employee John Demaine and then drove off at speed, almost hitting a police horse and pedestrian, during the incident on January 21, Bradford Crown Court heard.
Shoaib had been banned from the roads last March over a previous incident of dangerous driving, but after a row at home he stormed out of the house and took his brother’s Toyota vehicle to go for a haircut.
But half an hour before the kick-off in Bradford City’s game against Millwall in January, Mr Demaine tried to print out a parking ticket for the vehicle which had been parked in North Parade.




A judge at Bradford Crown Court was shown footage taken by an on-looker of Shoaib behaving aggressively and eventually throwing a punch which missed the warden.
Another piece of CCTV footage also showed Shoaib driving off and narrowly missing a police officer on horseback and a male pedestrian.
After the case, Councillor Abdul Jabar, Bradford Council’s executive member for neighbourhoods and community Safety, said: “We will not tolerate anyone attacking or behaving aggressively towards our Council wardens as they go about their professional duties.
