Unpaid work for South Cumbria man who threw cone

A MAN who threw a traffic cone at a parked car following a street brawl has been sentenced.
Tarran Doak, of Lound Road, Kendal, pleaded guilty to charges of common assault and criminal damage to property at Cartmel, on May 24.
Magistrates in South Lakeland heard the 26-year-old had been to Cartmel Racecourse, near Grange, on the evening in question with his girlfriend Jenna Sweeney and another friend.
But prosecutor Mr Peter Kelly said the couple began drinking and went to a Cartmel pub to continue their night out.
“He made a disclosure to having kissed another friend which caused his girlfriend to be upset,” Mr Kelly told the court.
“Others became involved and at that point the defendant was seen to push her to the floor.”
The court was told a fight ensued, resulting in Doak being knocked unconscious and suffering a fractured cheek and four chipped teeth.
Miss Karen Templeton, defending, said: “He then came round at some point and saw a vehicle pull up which was the same as the one he associated with the person who attacked him. He thought it was that same person coming back to get him again and he picked up a traffic cone and threw it.”
Magistrates were told damage of £400 was caused to the bonnet of a Mini.
Miss Templeton told the court that her client had stopped using drugs and had got his alcohol intake under control.
Magistrates ordered Doak to serve a 12-month community order with a six month supervision requirement.
He was also told to undertake 80 hours of unpaid work and to pay £85 costs, a victim surcharge of £60 and to contribute £200 towards the damage to the car.
Chris Holland, chairman of the bench, said: “We appreciate the fact that you have turned your life around, we see this as a turning point, and we wish you well.”
