Splats bang out of or­der


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A YOB sprayed a man with TOMATO SAUCE from a car in a bizarre at­tack.

Lewis Wise­man, 20, was nabbed af­ter his stunned vic­tim quickly jot­ted down the mo­tor’s reg­is­tra­tion num­ber.

The thug ad­mit­ted as­sault by beat­ing and crim­i­nal dam­age.

Pros­e­cu­tor Denis King said the tar­get was out­side The Lawyer pub in Nor­wich when he was at­tacked in Novem­ber.

The car slowed down, he heard a “splash­ing noise” and he was soaked by a “red sub­stance”.

Nor­wich mag­is­trates heard that he rubbed his face, tasted the sub­stance and re­alised it was ketchup.

Po­lice tracked down Wise­man, of Nor­wich, from the car’s reg­is­tra­tion plate.

He was or­dered to pay the vic­tim £185 com­pen­sa­tion plus £85 costs.
