Leeds Crown Court heard Yates's "drug of choice" was amphetamines and he drank around five bottles of wine day.

The 31-year-old stole Easter eggs from the Tesco store on Fryston Road, Castleford, on February 20 this year. He then spat at a policewoman and bit her on the hand when she went to his home on February 28. Andrew Horton, prosecuting, said the officer was left with teeth marks on her hand and was left shocked by the attack.

Mr. Horton said Yates was sniffing from a gas canister when he went into a betting shop on March 3. He shouted abuse at a woman behind the counter and picked up a stool but was restrained by other customers. The defendant then went outside and threw a bottle through the window, causing £300 worth of damage.

Half an hour later Yates, described in court as a "known shoplifter", went into the Tesco store on Fryston Road and was challenged by a security guard.

Yates smashed a bottle of wine on the floor and said he was carrying needles. He spat at the security guard as he was restrained and told him he had hepatitis. Customers helped to detain Yates who then made threats to harm the manager's child.

Mr Horton said Yates managed to escape after he bit the security on the ankle and pulled the manager's hair.
Both needed hospital treatment after the incident.
