Craig Marchant, mitiging, said: “When he was arrested he said 'you don't understand she slept with my friend'. It does not justify his behaviour it was reactionary behaviour by provocation of a nature nobody wishes to hear. He is sorry for what happened.”
Mr Marchant said Miss Chittock had not wanted to press charges and the pair have remained friends.
Magistrates' fined Peck, who was a railway track man, £300 and told to him to pay a £15 victim surcharge and £65 towards court costs.
