Worker at stress ball factory punches boss, brandishes knives

A UK worker lost his temper when he lost his job at a stress ball packing plant.

Darren Baldwin, 44, allegedly punched his boss then brandished two knives when he was fired from his temporary job at a warehouse, the Blackpool Gazette reports.

According to prosecutor Tracy Yates, Baldwin "showed the knives to his colleague and started to shout threats like, 'I will cut you up'."

The knives were reportedly tools of Baldwin's trade at the warehouse.

Baldwin left the warehouse in the English town of Blackpool and was arrested later, according to the newspaper.

At his court appearance, Baldwin admitted to assault and was bailed on the condition he does not enter the Sycamore trading estate where the company operates.
