A MAN who smashed the windows of a car with a baseball bat minutes before being involved in a crash has been given a 12-month supervision order.
Heze Perks, 21, of Oathills Drive, Tarporley, appeared at Chester Magistrates’ Court on November 6.
He was in the passenger seat of a Vauxhall Astra when he and the driver piled out of the car to shatter the windows of a parked van in the early hours of January 20 this year while it was parked on Hockenhull Lane, Tarvin.
Footprints at the scene were matched to Perks’ Nike trainers after he was arrested on January 25.
Perks, formerly of Tattenhall Lane, Beeston, turned up late for his trial in Chester Magistrates Court on October 14 and was found guilty of criminal damage in his absence.
He was given a 12-month community sentence with a supervision requirement and was ordered to pay compensation of £265 and prosecution costs of £50.
A further hearing will take place on December 4 as an anti social behaviour order has been applied for.
Perks has since been charged with driving while disqualified and drink driving on November 8 and will have to attend court again on December 10.
