Damaging a glass top table in a Harpenden pub has ended up costing a man over £400 in court fines.
At St Albans Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (7), Jozef Basinski, 31, of Crabtree Lane, Harpenden, was sentenced after pleaded guilty to causing £50 of damage to a table at The George, High Street, on September 13 this year.
The court heard that staff had told Basinski not to return to the pub, which had been hosting a hen party at the time, after being found in his underpants.
However after returning and smashing the table, he was arrested and removed from the premises by the police.
The court was told that Basinski stated that he had become “quite drunk” that evening, and after meeting friends at the pub, had flipped a table over, but did not know why.
