The boy who was locked up for swearing at the police

A tweet from Labour MP Tom Watson alerts us to a post on the void:
An 18 year old boy was sentenced to four months in youth custody last year for an Andrew Mitchell style rant at police. 
A celebratory tweet by Greater Manchester Police shows that Ricky Gemmell, 18, was arrested and jailed after “ranting and swearing” at police during last year’s disturbances in the city. 
According to Manchester Mule the youngster had never been in trouble before.
