A Carlisle man has admitted assaulting his partner after she pushed him out of the bed.
The court was told Carl Allan Swan, 26, was at home and in bed asleep, when his partner arrived home from a night-out in the early hours of January 26.
Magistrates in Carlisle were told the female pushed him from the bed and he fell to the floor, he got up and pulled the mattress up from the bed causing his partner to fall out of the bed.
Police were called after a neighbour phoned them about a disturbance, when Swan saw the neighbour outside the house he had a verbal argument with her and said he would “torch her car”.
Swan, of Sunnymeade, Upperby, Carlisle, pleaded guilty to a public order offence towards the neighbour and assault by beating on his partner.
Shaun Harkins for Swan told the magistrates his client actually said to the neighbour he “would smash the car” and admitted there was verbal exchange.
For the public order offence he was fined £153 and for the assault in a domestic situation a fine of £230, also prosecution costs £85 with victims surcharge of £85.
