A man who threatened to jump off a multi-storey car park after his girlfriend went on a night out without him has been given a community order.

Liam Gladwell was also banned from driving for a year after driving his partner's car while unfit through drink.

Appearing for sentencing at Basingstoke Magistrates' Court yesterday (January 23), Gladwell was also fined £300 and ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

He had already admitted criminal damage, taking a motor vehicle without consent, driving while unfit through drink and using a vehicle without third party insurance when he appeared at Aldershot Magistrates' Court on January 2.

At that hearing, prosecutor Fiona McMurray said Sian Tolley, Gladwell's girlfriend of a year went, out with some of her family members on December 14 last year.

At about 7.30am the next day, Gladwell went to Miss Tolley's home in Tongham Road, Aldershot, to ask where she had been, before he kicked a bedroom door, head-butted a wardrobe and pulled down a curtain pole. When he confronted her, he threatened to jump off a multi-storey car park and drive off a bridge.

Miss McMurray said Gladwell, 20, of Foden Road in Aldershot, also drove about 50 feet in Miss Tolley’s Vauxhall Corsa while nearly twice the legal drink-drive limit.
