Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
you mean can they destroy the bat?
Thanks for the information
It rather depends what happened but almost certainly.
If there was a conviction they could have been given a forfeiture and destruction order but mostly likely it was destroyed as it was used to commit a criminal offence and therefore did not have a lawful purpose.
Baseball bats have a legitimate purpose when used in the course of legitimate baseball. Normally though they are accompanied by a glove, a ball and suitable clothing.
When used in a way that might be considered a firearm at police officers that is not really lawful. They are entitled to dispose of property used in that way.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
What were you doing with it?
Yes, that is against the law.
Doesn't that rather suggest they should be destroying it rather than that should be giving it back?
No, that is no problem.
You can get a refund on that by emailing customer services.
Then that is wrong.
Anybody who says that they did not have a ground to destroy a baseball bat used in this way is wrong.
I suspect he didn't have full information.
