Sale man fined for slashing son's ex-partner's tyres
3:07pm Wednesday 3rd October 2012 in News
A SALE man made a midnight visit to the home of his son’s one-time partner and wrecked her car tyres.
But the woman spotted 37-year-old Bryan Poole crouched by the side of the vehicle and called the police.
At Manchester Magistrates’ Court, Poole, of Croft Road, Sale Moor, was told by District Judge Jonathon Taaffe: “This was a piece of mindless vandalism against somebody who frankly should have been treated with respect.
“I don’t know the family history but you have an unenviable record of domestic violence and for failing to comply with court orders.
“You are a man who lacks the ability to think things through and acts impulsively”.
Poole, who is unemployed, pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal damage on August 13 and was given 100 hours unpaid work and £60 costs.
He was also made to pay £280 compensation for the damaged tyres. The judge imposed a 5 year restraining order prohibiting him from contacting the woman.
“If you break the order you will go to jail with your record,” the judge warned.
Suzanne Ludlow, defending, said there had been problems between the parties and some of Poole’s property had been damaged.
