A chef was angry when his motorbike was damaged in a collision with a van, so he later vandalised the vehicle in retaliation.
The van was being driven by the partner of 32-year-old Wez MacLeod’s own partner’s mother, and defence solicitor Willie Young told Inverness Sheriff Court: “There is no love lost between them.”
Sheriff Robert Frazer heard that MacLeod, of Highfield Circle, Muir of Ord, was seen to damage two wing mirrors as he left a property in Finlayson Court on October 19.
Mr Young said his client, who admitted a charge of wilful damage, “acted in the heat of the moment after going to a garage to get a cost for the repair of his motorcycle, which was significant”.
MacLeod was fined £270.
