Remember that enraged customer that drove a 1983 Rolls Royce straight through a Tesco store?

For his uncalled for act of destruction, the man – Robert Caton – has won for himself a 16-month, all-expense paid trip behind bars. In addition to serving time behind bars, Caton has also been slapped with another 3-month sentence because he didn’t take a breath test, plus a five-year suspension of his license.

But that’s not the most depressing part, as far as we’re concerned. His beautifully restored 1983 Rolls Royce was severely damaged beyond repair after Caton decided to use it as his preferred weapon of store destruction. You can say he was partly successful too because the Tesco store he decided to crash into ended up losing over £60,000 in damages and lost sales.

For his part, Caton was remorseful at the sentencing and owned up to his reckless stupor. “I gladly offer my sincere apologies to all affected by my reckless and irresponsible behaviour,” he said.

Kudos to him for finally manning up and taking responsibility, although if he had shown this much poise at the time of the incident, then none of it would have probably happened.

Is he drunk ? What a mess! Good thing no other civilian was injured on the incident. He should talk the problem with the management instead of acting that way. So immature!

Five year suspension? He should not have a license at all. Don’t give it back to him. I don’t think that it was on purpose as there are no people in the store which might have caused a conflict or something. He must have been just drunk.
