A man who keyed a £100,000 Aston Martin has been given a suspended sentence.
Gary Brissett, 48, caused £9,000 of damage when he scraped his keys down the car in June this year.
The incident was caught on the owner’s dash cam while the car was parked in a supermarket car park in Morning Lane.
Brissett was given an eight-week sentence suspended for 12 months and ordered to wear an electronic tag each night between 9pm and 7am. The tag must be worn until 13 December.
Brissett pleaded guilty at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (September 15) to one count of criminal damage to the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, which was classed as property worth more than £5,000.
