A man from Gateshead launched a rude rant at his mother after she refused to borrow money from him UK News

A man from Gateshead swore to his mother to call her a “big f ****** c ***” and broke plates after refusing to borrow money from her.

Graham Clark, 37, of Blackburn Green, Gateshead, appeared in South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday on one count of criminal damage.

The court heard how Clark called his mother on January 14 to ask her to borrow money, but she refused.

He came to her address and called her a “big f ****** c ***” and told her that she was a horrible person because she didn’t want to borrow money from her. .

Clark then kicked a vase, causing it to crash and knocked over two plates from a bench, which was worth £ 10.

Lawyer Leanne Duffy told the court Clark already has 18 convictions for 45 offenses.

During the mitigation, Clark, who was not represented, told the court he was having a “bad time” and said his relationship with his mother has since improved.

He said, “I was having a bad time, there is no excuse for it, it was a horrible thing to do.

“I’m back at work, looking for a place just trying to get back to normal.

“My mom and I are doing fine. I just derailed a bit, there is no excuse for that.

“I talk to him on the phone every day. All I can do is regret what I did and try to come to terms with it.”

District Judge Kathryn Meek agreed with Clark that it was a horrible thing to do and that there was no excuse for his behavior.

The judge issued a community order for 12 months, 50 hours of unpaid work and ordered him to pay costs of £ 180.
