25-year-old pleads guilty
A Ramsey man's been jailed for two weeks after smashing a window when his girlfriend ended their relationship.
Twenty-five-year-old Ryan Langton of Queens Pier Road appeared before magistrates at Douglas courthouse.
He pleaded guilty to possessing class B and C drugs, and criminally damaging the window on 29 June.
Prosecution advocate Hazel Carroon told the hearing Langton's girlfriend dialled 999 at 11.30pm when he reacted badly to being dumped.
Langton dropped a guitar and smashed a window at the flat the couple shared – police arrived and tried to take him into custody.
But as he struggled, a bag containing four unprescribed Xanax pills fell to the floor and a search revealed he also had 0.3 grammes of cannabis worth £6.
His advocate, Paul Glover, said unemployed Langton couldn't pay a fine but wanted to be sentenced immediately without probation reports.
Magistrates sent him to prison for a total of two weeks, but made no orders for costs or compensation.
