Sheffield Magistrates’ Court heard on January 31 how John Bagnall, aged 31, Goosecroft Avenue, Thrybergh, Rotherham, fell out with his ex-partner outside East Herringthorpe club, Rotherham, before he kicked her car.

Robert Coyne, prosecuting, said Bagnall had dropped their son off with his ex-partner and he gave her a lift to the club on December 22 where she had left her car.

But Mr Coyne added Bagnall became concerned when his ex-partner went into the club and he did not want to leave his son and an argument erupted and he kicked her car.
