A 19-year-old man from Great Sutton was fined for a vandalism spree on a ‘costly night out’.

Taylor Dougherty, 19, of Acre Road, tried to rip off a wing mirror of a BMW because of a family feud.

He also smashed a shop window, a bus shelter and a van windscreen in Little Sutton during the early hours of December 7.

Dougherty pleaded guilty to four counts of criminal damage and was ordered to pay £1,640 to the victims at Chester Magistrates Court .

Presiding magistrate Stuart Clarke said: “You know your behaviour was unacceptable and we do not want to see you back here.

“It was a costly night out wasn’t it?”

Dougherty was spotted by a witness trying to rip off the wing mirror of a BMW X6 owned by Martin Newton on Highfield Road shortly after midnight.

The 19-year-old said a dispute between his mother and the car owner’s wife had been going on for about three years.

He admitted his actions were ‘out of anger’ after he and Mr Newton had been eyeballing each other in the pub earlier in the night.

After busting the wing mirror, Dougherty moved on to Chester Road where he smashed the front window of Entwistle Green estate agents.

He also damaged a Cheshire West and Chester Council bus shelter and the windscreen and side panel of a Ford Transit van owned by BT.

Dougherty must pay £500 compensation to Mr Newton and he has to cough up £300 to CWaC for the bus shelter, £280 to BT and £200 to Entwistle Green.

Magistrates fined the 19-year-old £250 and ordered him to pay £110 costs.
