Man fined for headbutting sausage roll machine
The baker, Shane Thompson who is 22, had been working on the £27,000 computer-controlled machine, and something went awry, he lost his mind and head-butted the display screen
He head-butted with such force, he created a crack measuring six by four inches on the display scren
His bosses reckon it would cost £3,204 to fix, Prosecutor Kathryn Reeve told the court in Scarborough.
It was at his time at Yorkshire Baker, which he'd been happily working at for 17 months previously, where he lost his bap.
His former bosses docked £295 from his wages to cover the cost of the damage and wanted the £2,909 balance, the court heard. Defending solicitor Robert Vining said: “The defendant is at a total loss to understand how butting a glass screen and cracking it results in that piece of equipment being worthless."
“He admits he became frustrated with the equipment. It was not making the pastry properly so he lost his temper and head-butted the glass screen and cracked it.”
We've all done it, yeah?
He was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £720 compensation towards the cost of repairing the machine. Thompson has since found a new job as ride operator at Flamingo Land theme park.
Is there anyone on Earth with a better CV than Shane Thompson? We're quite serious.
