A 24 year old man from Gloucester managed to punch a hole in a wall last week, exposing electrical wires. He wasn’t trying his best at some electrical DIY however, he was having a heated argument with his partner and things got a little out of hand. After leaving a hole in his partners flat from punching it five or six times, he then drove off in her car.

Marley Minto pleaded guilty to criminal damage and taking his partners car without consent, then apologised for his actions. The outburst happened in front of his partners five children, two of which were his own. “I’m very sorry for what I’ve done,” Minto commented, “I shouldn’t have acted like that in front of my children – I love them to bits.” He had to pay £498 in fines, costs and surcharges. He also said that he would pay for the damages made to his partner’s wall.
