Rock was subsequently charged and pleaded guilty to possession of a knife in a public place and possession of Class A drugs. 

He was locked up when he appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court for sentencing on Monday (10). 

PC Ken Tinley, of the knife crime team, said: “Those who choose to carry knives need to realise this can only lead to negative consequences. They’re more likely to get injured or stabbed themselves, as situations involving weapons can quickly get out of control. 

“Anyone found in possession of a knife could end up with a criminal record while, particularly if they use knives to hurt someone, they can expect to spend time in prison.” 

Rock was jailed for four months.
