Bachelor sentenced for claiming his penis was stuck in a jam jar
GARETH Owen Lloyd, 49, of Bryn y Coed, Holywell, Wales, described as a “bachelor” by Wales Online, told a woman his penis was stuck in a jam jar. He told another women his penis was stuck in a vacuum cleaner. He contacted both women via his mobile phone.
When police finally tracked Lloyd down, he had made 5,800 calls in just over a two month period.
At Flintshire Magistrates’ Court at Mold heard Lloyd made lots of calls about his stuck penis from his “pay-as-you-go” mobile phone.
Phillip Marshall-Thomas, defending, argued that the majority of the thousands of calls would have been within the legal boundaries:
“He thought that he was having a bit of a joke. It was a joke in poor taste, perhaps a little perverted to say the least. My client apologises profusely for his behaviour.”
Lloyd admitted to three charges under the Telecommunications Act – making calls which caused annoyance, inconvenience and needless anxiety, and making calls which were grossly offensive. District judge Andrew Shaw imposed a 12-month community order, banned him from not using or owning any mobile phone other than a registered contract phone and ordered that he pay £85 costs.
Mr Lloyd should also take care of his penis and avoid metal zippers and toasters…
