FURIOUS that his girlfriend stopped him from going out to get more alcohol, Christian Downey grabbed a baseball bat and smashed three of her car windows.
She had refused to hand over his van keys, so he took the weapon from a cupboard beneath the stairs and launched the attack - and a petrified Michelle Elms called the police.
Ms Elms watched out of her window as Downey hit the windows of her car. Officers discovered Downey had smashed two offside windows and the windscreen of her Peugeot 106, Fenland magistrates were told by prosecutor Nicola Ebbs on Tuesday.
Downey told police he had woken up in a bad mood that day, and started drinking.
