Man threw his bike at ex-partner as she drove in the town centre

Have your say

A MAN who threw his bike at his ex-girlfriend’s car while she waited at traffic lights was fined £100.

Nathan Baker, of Brook Street, Grantham, admitted a public order offence. Prosecutor Jill Derby said Baker had left messages on the victim’s phone prior to the offence which were “threatening in nature and lasted for several hours”.

On July 13, Baker was on his bike in Wharf Road when he saw the victim in her car at the junction with London Road. Baker, 22, then threw his bike at her car before reaching through the window and grabbing her by the hair. After eventually being pushed away, he rode off.

The victim drove away and made a complaint to police. However, Mrs Derby told the court that as the victim was unwilling to support a prosecution, only a public order charge was brought.

Chris Pye-Smith, defending, said Baker and the victim are now in a relationship again.

Mr Pye Smith added: “It was a minor dispute that occurred between them and it is behind them and they carry on.”

He added: “This matter was an isolated incident between them.”

Baker was fined £100 and ordered to pay costs of £50 and a £15 surcharge.
