Boyfriend 'kicked off' over pictures of his privates posted on Facebook
FURIOUS boyfriend Karl Smith threatened to burn down his lover's home after she posted photographs of his private parts on Facebook.
He was desperate to get a mobile phone back from her so he could make sure the X-rated pictures were deleted to save his blushes, Grimsby magistrates heard.
But he fell foul of the police during an angry confrontation at the police station when he demanded the phone be handed back to him after wrongly believing she was in custody.
Smith, 24, of Macaulay Street, Grimsby, admitted threatening to damage windows belonging to Katie Bakes on January 28.
John Harris, prosecuting, said Smith went to Grimsby Police Station demanding to see Miss Bakes, whom he believed was in custody, because he wanted to retrieve a mobile phone from her.
He caused a disturbance and Stephen Johnson, who was with him, tried to calm him down.
He claimed his girlfriend had been posting pictures of his private parts on Facebook and he wanted to remove the offending photographs.
Smith was asked to leave but shouted: "If you don't get my phone back, I'm going round there to put her windows in and burn her house down."
He later admitted "kicking off" and "acting like a kid" because he was angry.
Andrew Havery, mitigating, said Smith lost his temper and made "foolish comments" because Miss Bakes had posted inappropriate photographs on Facebook.
Sentence was adjourned until March because Smith faces other matters.
