CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The man convicted of threatening police officers finally fulfilled his court-ordered public punishment on Monday morning.

In March, Judge Pinkey Carr ordered Richard Dameron to serve jail time for threatening to kill police officers and when the time was up, he was to stand outside Cleveland's Second District Police Station with a sign apologizing. The sign said, "I was an idiot that day and it will never happen again."

Dameron was ordered to stand outside the station in June, but he didn't show up. He claimed he was drunk and didn't have a ride. Dameron was hauled back to court, and a furious Judge Carr sentenced him to serve an additional 90 days in jail.

On Labor Day, Dameron stood outside of the Second District with his sign.

"I'm sorry for being a fool like I am. And I hope that Officer Simone and his family takes my apology because I was drunk. I apologize from deep down," Dameron said. "I just want it to be over with and done."
