Magistrate Stephen Bridges told Willock: ‘This is an assault of the highest category – you ruined his car. All for the sake of we know not what. This assault is so serious that custody is the only option in the circumstances. [My emphasis.] Your behaviour beggars belief, frankly.’
Willock, from East Ham, was given a 12-week suspended sentence [My emphasis] and 180 hours of unpaid work, and ordered to pay £650 in compensation.
