A man pointed a replica gun at his friend's head as a "prank".

Oxford Crown Court heard that 30-year-old Roy Sharp, of Turnberry Close, Bicester, felt he had been shunned by Adam Slater, so pointed an imitation pistol at his head and pulled the trigger.

Judge Julian Hall gave Sharp a three-year community order and a supervision order. He said: "As pranks go, it was incredibly stupid."
