A man who threatened his partner’s neighbour if she called the police was handed a fine.
Ricky Wayne Green (24) of Tudsbury Terrace, Sutton, was approached by the female after she said she saw him breaking twigs from a bush outside her house.
Having had problems between them before, she approached him and used a device to record the conversation.
He admitted to Mansfield magistrates using threats to damage property, including her door, if she called the police, as well as threats to attack her father.
Defending, Chris Perry, said his client had been in drink and was ashamed by his actions. Green was fined £100, told to pay £85 costs and a £20 surcharge.
