A WOODBRIDGE greengrocer has been sentenced for threatening to smash up a police car.

Darren Miller, 21, of Cobbold Road, pleaded guilty to threatening to destroy property.

Miller was also found guilty by a jury of causing an affray on June 13 this year.

Ipswich Crown Court heard that Miller had been involved in an argument with his girlfriend when the police arrived.

Rosalyne Mandil-Wade prosecuting said Miller reacted violently towards the police then threatened to "kick their car to bits".

Judge Peter Thompson decided to follow the recommendations in the pre-sentence report and ordered Miller to carry out 100 hours unpaid work. He was also put on probation for a year.
