A man who attacked a car showroom with an axe after deciding a Porsche he bought there a decade ago was “no good” has been given a two-year community order by Luton Crown Court.
James Hyett managed to avoid jail last year after leaving a severed deer’s head at an Essex Tesco store and was serving a suspended sentence when he went to Henlow Car Sales in November with the axe.
He smashed an office window and the rear window of a BMW parked on the forecourt before he attacked a nearby Land Rover Discovery, stabbing a tyre with a knife.
He was found by police shortly afterwards sitting on a wall outside an Esso service station. The 24-month community order will have a mental health treatment requirement.
