A man flew into a drunken rage and threatened staff with a baseball bat, a court was told.
Darius Grybauskas, 37, went to NeNe in Lynn Road, Wisbech, at about 5.15pm on 17 January.
A member of staff believed they recognised him as having previously been aggressive and stolen from the shop.
Grybauskas left after being confronted by the store manager, but later returned armed with a metal baseball bat.
He threatened the manager and a scuffle ensued before Grybauskas left and police were called.
When officers arrived, they found Grybauskas in an “extremely intoxicated” state.
He went on to admit threatening a person with an offensive weapon.
