A Suffolk man who breached a court order banning him from contacting his former partner has been jailed for 38 weeks.
Wayne Roberts was made the subject of a restraining order by magistrates last year ordering him not to contact Lauren Seeley after he admitted damaging her phone, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
However, on June 6 this year Roberts made a telephone call to Miss Seeley from a withheld number and told her he loved her and missed her, said Simon Gladwell, prosecuting.
"He sounded down and under the influence of alcohol and she shouted at him to leave her alone and hung up," said Simon Gladwell, prosecuting.
He rang back and when Miss Seeley's friend answered Roberts got angry and said he was two minutes away from the house.
