Macclesfield Express - - SILKMEN ON GLORY TRAIL -

A WOMAN broke a win­dow af­ter be­ing re­fused en­try to a bar.

Karen Napier, 36, tried to go into the Thirsty Beak, Dukes Court, Mac­cles­field but was de­nied en­try be­cause it was thought she was drunk, a court heard. She be­came an­gry and kicked the win­dow.

Prose­cut­ing, Tess Kenyon said: “She started shout­ing and swear­ing and kicked at the win­dow, caus­ing it to crack. The owner said it cracked like a spi­der’s web.

“She said no-one has the right to dam­age prop­erty and it had an im­pact on her busi­ness.

“The de­fen­dant had gone into town at 3pm and started drink­ing from 5pm.” Napier, of Brocklehurst Av­enue, Mac­cles­field, pleaded guilty at Stock­port Mag­is­trates court to caus­ing crim­i­nal dam­age on Fe­bru­ary 14 at 7.30pm. De­fend­ing, John Gal­lagher said: “She didn’t think she con­sumed enough to get into that state. She ei­ther had a bad re­ac­tion or her drink was spiked.

“She has no mem­ory un­til she woke up in a po­lice cell. She’s been out of trou­ble for 13 years.

“It’s quite clearly out of char­ac­ter.”

Mag­is­trates gave Napier a con­di­tional dis­charge and or­dered her to pay £300 com­pen­sa­tion and a £20 vic­tim sur­charge.
