A VANDAL who trashed a police car with his crutches after he flew into a rage because he could not find a toilet is today awaiting his punishment.

Justin Long caused hundreds of pounds of damage and threatened two police officers in a “sustained” alcohol-fuelled fury.

The 36-year-old, of Croft Street, had been hobbling around on crutches in Ipswich town centre when he hinted to officers that he might go to the toilet in the street and asked them for a lift to a public convenience.

When the officers refused, Long launched an attack on their vehicle, smashing the windscreen and the emergency lights on the roof.
