A MAN called James Bond threatened to "shoot cops in the teeth" during a six-hour stand-off after launching a foul-mouthed rant at neighbours who complained about him blasting loud music.
The 55-year-old - who shares his name with 007 - has been jailed for more than two years after his drunken outburst brought "fear and terror to the streets" of Manchester.1James Bond has been jailed for 27 months after he threatened to shoot his neighbours and copsCredit: Greater Manchester Police
After downing a bottle of vodka, Bond - who had not taken his anti-psychotic medication - began playing music at a high volume before banging on the wall adjoining his neighbour's property on February 7.
By 8.20pm, police had been called and he was seen vomiting and falling over in his front garden in New Moston, Manchester Evening News reports.
After cops left the scene in Annesley Road, Bond unleashed a tirade of abuse on his neighbours, leaving them feeling "intimidated" and "nervous", prosecutor Lucy Wright said.
"You are going to get leathered," he screamed.
"You are all going to get it. I am going to shoot you."
Police were once again called out at 5.10am - but when officers knocked on the door, Bond appeared in an upstairs window wielding an orange BB gun.
He then began a verbal attack at cops, telling them he would "shoot them in the teeth" as he waved the weapon around, adding: "F*** off out my garden."
Officers retreated and called for back up, with armed cops then in a six-hour standoff with Bond before he finally turned himself in at about 11am.
A hearing at Minshull Street Crown Court was told how he was struggling to cope with the sudden loss of his dad to Covid just weeks before the incident.
Bond, who has 18 previous convictions for 28 offences, also lost his son in 2017, the court heard.
Iain Johnstone, defending, said Bond had not taken his prescribed anti-psychotic medication, adding that his client faced losing his mother, who was in hospital with the virus, that night. She has since passed away.
"He is a gentleman who has managed despite the difficulties he has faced," Mr Johnstone said.
"He immediately gave an indication of a guilty plea and it does appear to be a one-off incident.
"In reality, (this case) is a 55-year-old man, drunk in his own house, with mental health problems. That is not the type of situation which represents serious disorder.
"The probation service are of the view that the risk of reoffending is good and the record of supervision is good."
But handing down his sentence, Judge Sophie McKone said Bond's actions made for a "very frightening experience" for all involved.
"Being confronted with a gun must have been a very frightening experience for them," she said.
"You continued to be aggressive and shouted at people for hours.
"It went on for hours and only after several hours of negotiation did you give yourself up.Most read in NewsExclusiveSINGER NICKEDChart-topping pop star in 30s arrested on suspicion of assaulting girlfriend'DISGRACEFUL'Woman, 55, slammed after running topless during Prince Philip's funeralREGULAR JOEOff-duty Biden dresses down in running shoes at G7 bar - but only has a CokeFINAL SELFIETragic last pics of sisters dancing before '"satanic sacrifice" knife murder'UH-BODid Boris Johnson almost hold hands with Joe Biden's wife at G7 love-in?CARRIE COTCarrie Symonds plays with son Wilfred as she joins Jill Biden on beach walk
"It led to fear and terror on the streets."
James Bond, of Annesley Road, pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm with the intention to cause fear of violence; and using threatening words/behaviour.
He has been jailed for 27 months.

Deebo Samuel Named 49ers X-Factor for 2021 Season
Getty Deebo Samuel #19 of the San Francisco 49ers.
There is always one standout player who, inevitably, will be carrying more weight than others during each season. For the San Francisco 49ers, that’s going to be wide receiver Deebo Samuel, according to Bleacher Report’s Brad Gagnon.
Gagnon determined an X-Factor for each NFL team but stuck with the 49ers’ third-year wideout.
He explained the reasoning behind his pick:
You could argue that Jimmy Garoppolo, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle and Nick Bosa are all X-factors for the San Francisco 49ers, considering that they’re crucial players coming off injury-derailed seasons. But we have a no-starting quarterback rule, and Kittle and Bosa feel a little too established, considering their incredible 2019 campaigns.
So while there’s a little more margin for error with Samuel because of the presence of second-year first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk at wide receiver, we’ll go with Garoppolo’s favorite non-Kittle target from 2019.
It’ll be hard for Kittle to excel to the best of his superstar ability and for Aiyuk to evolve as a sophomore if Samuel can’t stay healthy and pick up in 2021 where he left off during a promising rookie campaign in 2019.
The 49ers are stacked in a lot of spots, but a lot rests on Samuel’s shoulders. It’s hard to envision them rebounding from a brutal 2020 if he isn’t a big factor next season.

Getty2020: Jordan Fuller #32 of the LA Rams attempts to tackle Deebo Samuel #19 of the San Francisco 49ers.
Samuel turned heads during his rookie campaign in 2019 where he reeled in 57 passes for 802 yards with three scores. But last season was a different story for the South Carolina product as the 49ers were plagued with injuries last season with Samuel amongst the list of casualties.
He suffered a foot injury prior to training camp, then dealt with a hamstring injury that cut his season short.
Samuel played in just seven games last season, hauling in 33 catches for 391 yards and a touchdown. His best performance came against the LA Rams where he made 11 catches for 133 yards in the Niners’ Week 12 victory.
There is not worry about what Samuel will bring on game day when he’s available, but staying healthy will be Samuel’s biggest task. The Niners have barely begun offseason training and have already lost two playmakers to season-ending injuries, which also led them to cancel mandatory minicamp.Samuel Gives Promising Injury Update
While a recent update on Samuel’s health has not been reported, he said back in March that he feels close to being 100 percent healthy again and plans to return even better than before.
“I have to get back into the top-tier shape that I need to be in, not only for me, but for the team,” Samuel told reporters in March, via NBC Sports. “For how much they use me in the offense, I got to get back into tip-top shape, making sure I don’t come back and get injured or anything.
“I want to hit the ground running without any setbacks”
Samuel also noted that he had been working on his first couple of steps and routes to “put the fear in defenders.”
