THE family of a Sale man, who attacked his father, was granted a court order in Manchester banning him from their home for 12 months.

Lee Hevingham, 28, was drinking in the conservatory when he complained about his brother wearing one of his t-shirts.

After his mother said, ‘that’s what brothers do’, he went berserk and began throwing bottles of beer about.

Told to leave he punched his father in the face and then went outside and used his fist to smash the windscreen of the family car and also a kitchen window.

At the city’s magistrates’ court, Hevingham of Thelwall Road, Sale Moor, pleaded guilty to assaulting his 51-year-old dad, criminal damage and possessing cannabis on December 21.

Prosecutor Clare Byers said Hevingham’s parents had allowed him to stay at their home after his girlfriend had thrown him out.

Asking for a restraining order the family felt he had major drink and drug issues.

It was said that Hevingham had since paid his parents £450 to cover the cost of the windows.

District Judge Khalid Qureshi sentenced Hevingham to nine months supervision and to attend a programme aimed at men who become aggressive or violent after the consumption of alcohol, and to pay £85 costs and £60 surcharge.

Granting the restraining order the judge told him: “You seem to be getting to grips by attending AA.”
