Man went out with kitchen knife down his trousers after row at a pub
A man who took a kitchen knife onto a village street was ordered to do 100 hours community work.
Nottingham magistrates also imposed a four-week prison sentence, suspended for a year, on Ben Ellis, 33, of The Glebe, Cossall.
He admitted having an offensive weapon - a knife - in Newton's Lane, Cossall, on March 15.
Nigel Dicks, mitigating, said Ellis made a joke in a village pub and this was "taken the wrong way" by members of a funeral party.
"He was assaulted by the recipient of the joke and was put in a headlock but extricated himself," said Mr Dicks.
