Man Fined For Smashing Car Window

A man who smashed the window of an islanders’ car on Monday night has been fined £80 by police and has agreed to pay £250 to make good the damage to the vehicle which he admitted attacking.

The drivers side window of a car in Hugh Street was smashed by the male, who had been drinking high strength cider.

PC Matt Collier found him lying in the gutter with a damaged knee and with glass all over his jumper, 20 yards from the Police station.

Matt says the male admitted his behaviour was drunken stupidity after an argument flared up while out on the town.

He was keen to apologise and pay for repairs.

The male is working on a contract in Scilly and Matt says police will talk with his employer.
