A MAN stripped to his underwear and posted his clothes through a letterbox after his girlfriend refused to let him in to talk.

Steven Foster battered on his girlfriend’s aunt’s door for an hour and was half-naked when he scuffled with police as they tried to arrest him.

Foster, 30, of Park Avenue, Fleetwood, pleaded guilty to making a threat to cause damage.

He was fined £100 but could not pay immediately so Blackpool magistrates said time he had already spent in custody would serve instead of the financial penalty.


Angus Craigen, prosecuting, said on Saturday evening Foster argued with his girlfriend.

She then went inside her aunt’s home on Medlock Avenue, Fleetwood, and would not let Foster in.

Foster was told numerous times to go away, but he continued banging on the door for an hour and threatened to damage the aunt’s front door and car.

The prosecutor said: “He stripped down to his underwear and posted his clothing through the letterbox. Police found him in the garden in his underwear waving his arms about and screaming. He was arrested after a scuffle.”

Peter Manning, defending, said Foster had no intention of carrying out the threats he made to damage the door or car.
