A teenager pushed his ex-girlfriend’s mum during a row in a shop, causing the woman to stumble into a fridge freezer, a court has heard.
Lee Wilson-Carroll’s actions caused a bruise to the woman’s arm. At the time, Wilson-Carroll was on a youth rehabilitation order for being concerned in the supply of cannabis.
Wilson-Carroll, 18, of The Promenade, Blackpool had pleaded guilty to a charge of assault by beating. The offence took place at a convenience store on Torquay Avenue, Blackpool on September 30.
Harry Pepper, prosecuting, said the defendant had just split up with his girlfriend. The mother went to the flat the couple had shared, to collect her daughter’s belongings.
They went to a nearby convenience store and the teenager followed by taxi. He wanted to speak to his ex-girlfriend and there was shouting between both parties.
The mother stood between them and ended up being pushed out of the way by Wilson-Carroll. Waheed Omran-Baber, defending, said since being given the youth rehabilitation order, Wilson-Carroll had carried out his intensive supervision to an excellent standard.
Recorder Nicholas Clarke QC gave the teenager a 12-month conditional discharge and made a three-year restraining order.
