A 21-year-old man caused damage to a kitchen window by head-butting it, Craigavon Magistrates Court heard last Wednesday.
Ryan Canavan, whose address was given as Carrigart Manor, Craigavon, was fined £150 for criminal damage on January 28 this year.
He was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.
The court heard that at 4.20pm police received a report of a disturbance at Richmount Gardens in Lurgan.
There had been a verbal argument and Canavan wanted to speak to his girlfriend.
He went into the rear garden and head-butted a kitchen window causing damage.
He told police: “It was an accident. I am going to pay for the damage.”
A barrister representing the defendant said that alcohol was a factor.
He added that the window had been repaired.
There was nothing else pending against him, the solicitor added.
District Judge, Mr Mervyn Bates, said there was nothing of a public order nature on the defendant’s record so he could deal with the matter with a fine.
