Grantham magistrates heard how in the midst of a row with his partner, a man threw a rock through a window.
Jody Henderson, 40, of Uplands Drive, Grantham, pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage to a window belonging to South Kesteven District Council on October 8.
At 4.15pm the defendant, who had been having some problems with his partner, returned to their address and found that the front door was locked. After attempting to shout through the window, Henderson then picked up a rock and threw it, smashing the glass. Police then arrived and Henderson was taken to the station, said prosecutor Daniel Pietryka.
Defending, Sonia Bhalla said that at the time of the incident her client was very emotional due to falling out with his partner. His actions followed an argument over a text, and he described what he did as ‘very juvenile’ and something he wouldn’t do again.
Henderson received a conditional discharge for six months, and was ordered to pay £85 prosecution costs, a £15 victim surcharge and a £150 criminal court charge.
