A Suffolk man who bombarded his ex partner with 100 unpleasant text messages and missed calls has been jailed for four months.
Nathan Strowger was feeling “upset and frustrated” when he sent the messages, which were derogatory but not threatening, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Strowger, 24, whose address was given as c/o Alma Road, Lowestoft, admitted harassment, assaulting a police officer, possession of cannabis, criminal damage and breach of two suspended sentences.
He was jailed for four months and two weeks by Recorder John Brooke-Smith who described the offences as “extremely unpleasant.”
Lynne Shirley, prosecuting, said that on December 5 Strowger damaged a police cell by smearing faeces on the floor and walls.
