A 24-year-old woman threw several items, including a bicycle, at her former partner's car in a "jealous rage", the Invercargill District Court has been told.
Marrietta Lillian Evans appeared before Judge John Macdonald yesterday for behaving in a threatening manner and intentionally damaging a vehicle on October 1. She was fined $500.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Glen McMurdo said Evans and the man had separated and on October 1 she went to his house to speak with him but he was not home. When she phoned him she heard a female's voice, which triggered anger.
Evans grabbed the man's bicycle and threw it at his vehicle three times. She then threw an object from the garden at the car and threw a rock, which smashed a window. She also hit the car several times with a coal shovel, Mr McMurdo said.
Evans admitted the offending and said she had "lost it" in a jealous rage, he said.
