A 29-year-old Suffolk man has been fined for breaching a suspended sentence he received after driving at his brothers’ cars and trying to ram a police vehicle.
Nicholas McClean missed two appointments he should have met as part of a 15-month suspended prison sentence he received last November for criminal damage, assault, carrying an offensive weapon and careless driving.
McClean, of St Peter’s Court, Lowestoft, admitted failing to attend a probation appointment and an unpaid work appointment at Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday.
On May 3 last year, he used a hammer to damage cars belonging to his two brothers, before driving at the vehicles, assaulting one of the brothers and trying to ram a police car.
McClean was said to have been engaging well and attending appointments since the breach.
