Well they do say ‘there’s no point crying over spilt milk’….
Tesco, the multi-billion pound international food giant has just been awarded a pay out of £1.50 from an unemployed man following a court hearing.
The Mirror reports: Price was hauled before Magistrates after an altercation in the Llandrindod Wells branch of the multi-billion pound company.
The court heard how Price was asked to leave the store – and threw a six-pint bottle milk on the floor in anger.
Prosecutor Julie Sullivan said: “He was told to return the milk he was holding and leave the store and he threw it at the floor in temper.
“He was verbally abusive and escorted off the premises. One pound fifty pence compensation is requested for the milk.”
Price was interviewed by police and told them he had throw it towards the store manager saying “catch it” and that it had accidentally spilled on the floor.
Unemployed Price admitted criminal damage at magistrates in Llandrindod Wells, Wales.
Phil Sherrard, defending, said: “This minor criminal damage. He knows he should have been more careful with the milk.”
Price was told to pay £1.50 compensation to Tesco, fined £75, ordered to pay £20 victim surcharge and £85 costs. The money will be deducted from his benefits at £10 a fortnight.
