A 20-YEAR-OLD man lost his temper after his parents asked him to contribute to the household budget.

Blackburn magistrates heard Callum Carrie smashed windows with a frying pan before throwing the pan through the window, hitting his mum on the leg.

Carrie, of Glenluce Crescent, Blackburn, pleaded guilty to assaulting his mother and damaging four glass windows.

He was made subject to a community order for eight months with 15 rehabilitation days and ordered to pay £200 compensation. He was made subject to a restraining order for six months. Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said the mother said there had been other incidents and she had requested a restraining order.

Imran Hussain, defending, said his client lost his temper after a short argument over him being asked to contribute to the household.

“After a night in a cold cell he has changed his attitude and now accepts he should contribute,” said Mr Hussain.
