Man banned from Grimsby kebab house after smashing window
A CUSTOMER who angrily smashed a window at a Grimsby takeaway after a violent confrontation with staff has been banned from the shop for a year.
Sean Faulder, 39, of Redbourne Road, Grimsby, admitted damaging a window at Victoria Kebab House on January 16.
Brendan Woodward, prosecuting, told Grimsby Magistrates' Court that Faulder tried to order some food at the takeaway at about 7.50pm but staff refused to serve him because of his behaviour.
He became aggressive towards staff and made threats.

He left but returned with a 2ft piece of boarding he had broken off across the road.
He hit windows, causing one at the Victoria Street shop to break. A staff member managed to grab the wood from him and there was a struggle. Faulder was dragged to the ground and detained.
Lauren Fisher, mitigating, said Faulder was upset after going to a joint funeral for his grandparents earlier that day and having an argument with his girlfriend. He had been drinking heavily.
He claimed a "joke" he made about being given wrong change at the shop was taken the wrong way by staff and he was punched in the face by one of them.
"It wasn't his intention to get into a fight with anybody," said Miss Fisher.
He claimed he suffered "quite nasty" injuries included loosened teeth and a scratch.
Unemployed Faulder was ordered to pay £200 compensation and £50 costs.
