Teenager Sentenced After Smashing Bus Window

Wednesday June 12 2013

Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court

A TEENAGER who threw a wheelie bin at a bus in a frenzy has been sentenced.

Connor Luke Dokic, 18, who smashed the window of the bus has been ordered to complete 150 hours of unpaid work.

He had been in a fight with his brother and lost his temper, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

David Ward, prosecuting, said Dokic, of Midland Road, Royston, did not realise the bus was coming up behind him.

Mr Ward said Dokic's lips were bleeding after he was hit by his brother.

Philip Howard, defending, said it was bad luck that the wheelie bin hit the bus.

Mr Howard added: "Mr Dokic lost his temper and, without thinking, got hold of the wheelie bin in a frenzy and threw it into the road.

"He had been in an argument in the street with his brother. The dispute turned into a fight and Mr Dokic was hit in the mouth."

Dokic admitted criminal damage and was ordered to pay £120 in compensation and a £60 victim surcharge.

if your country is that brilliant why are you not still in it. I think it is really rude when people say my country when they are living somewhere else.

Yet another classic example of our idiotic courts system!

Give lad a chance it was an accidental coinsidence it hit the bus am sure hrs rrgretting it !

give the lad a chance? He's had his chance to be a good citizen n doesn't care. What if that wheelie bin had hit a bike or caused a car to swerve? A pedestrian even? Could've been a lot worse! sorry mate but Britain's idiots have got to learn that their behaviour is not acceptable. I hope his 150 hrs unpaid work is spent cleaning the roads seeing as he likes to litter them..

Even though I wasn't there at the trial, and even though I have no knowledge of crime, punishment or the law that I didn't learn by watching TV soap operas, I still feel I have something important to say about this story. Blah blah, the birch, blah blah national service, blah blah holiday camp. The courts are idiots, and I'm definitely not.

Maybe the family aren't meaning to be "scruffy cunts" its hard enough to afford to live in times like this, people struggle end off there's no need to automatically assume theyre dirty because poverty is pretty much taking over cause of the stupid government!! However, was a bit idiotic throwing a bin, bit childish to say the least

I love the colourfull people in this country.
Colourfull language .
Why is it that if your foreign you geton your high horse and say they come here take all our jobs get all this money..........
When a foreigner has no electric no water
and shares a packet of biscuits.you all come out in sympathy and call them all the names under the sun .and most of you are so perfect. barnsley people.
heres a new motto.
F#*+ off back where you come from
we are diseased enough from our own hatred.

Les, I assume the lad is English with a name like Connor.
His second name Dokic is Balkan in origin, most likely Croatian or Serbian.

Reply Posted by les on Sunday June 16 2013 at 16:33
