He shouted and swore at the driver, grabbed the keys from inside the lorry and ran off but was followed and caught with the keys.
Rebecca Perrin, mitigating, said Scales was making a nuisance of himself and did not intend to use the keys.
Presiding magistrate Ray Dumbleton told Scales: “Behave yourself.”
Scales was given a one-year conditional discharge and was ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victims’ surcharge.
