John Hardwick, prosecuting at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court said; "The youth was not driving the car at the time and was merely a passenger. However, it does not matter that he was not the driver, he was in the car and I do not know who was driving so the damage to the vehicle, another car, shed, fences the lot, all the damage falls on him".
