Fined for teaching hooligan a lesson
David Crompton, 62, grabbed the 11-year-old after his window was hit.
But the retired joiner was stunned when the boy’s angry parents reported HIM to cops.
The dad of three — who had never been in trouble — must pay £50 compensation and £215 costs after admitting assault at Blackburn Magistrates’ Court.
During the incident, David had accidentally pushed the lad’s face into the door handle at his family’s home in Darwen, Lancs, the court heard.
He said: “It’s ludicrous. In my day, the parents would have had a strong word with the child.”
The boy’s dad said: “My son was really intimidated. He was left with a bruise under his eye after this man lost his temper.”
