A BUCHAN man smashed the windscreen of his ex-girlfriend’s car after she broke up with him through Facebook.

Jonathan Geddes, of Peterhead’s Forrest Road, repeatedly hit the car’s windscreen with a metal rod, shattering it, before running off shortly before 10pm on September 29 last year. The 21-year-old had arrived at the woman’s home on Forman Drive with the weapon at around 8pm and remained outside the house for some time before launching the assault on the vehicle, causing £500 damage.

Stuart Flowerdew, defending, said that Geddes had lashed out during an “emotional outburst” after his girlfriend of three years ended the relationship through the social networking site. He said: “Mr Geddes had never been violent before and is not violent by nature.” Sentence was deferred at Peterhead Sheriff Court for Geddes to be of good behaviour.
