A man who smashed the door of a stranger’s home while drunk on potent spirit has been told to pay for the damage and distress caused.

Michael Sedlar, 34, tipped the drunk scale when he smashed the glass door panel of a Newmarket family’s home.

Sedlar, of Wamil Way, Mildenhall, drank a 75cl bottle of 52% Slovakian spirit before turning up at 3.40pm on June 12 last year.

After being told to leave, he smashed a door panel and stumbled away – his trousers falling down as he left.

His aggression transferred to a pub, where he was removed by police – spitting, snorting and thrashing about.
