Man jailed for crashing car into store window
A drunk driver who crashed his Rolls-Royce into Tesco's because he had a grudge against the company was today jailed for 16 months.
obert Caton, 50, had downed two bottles of whisky before he ploughed the luxury car into the front window of the store in Andover, Hampshire, in May this year.
Winchester Crown Court heard that Caton had asked a security guard how long it would take to evacuate the building shortly before he got behind the wheel and made two attempts to crash into the store as terrified shoppers fled.
Six women suffered cuts, bruising and shock and one woman, who was 20 weeks' pregnant and had already suffered two miscarriages, needed to go to hospital.
The court heard that unemployed Caton, who suffers from depression, was angry with Tesco because he had saved up for a bed and cupboard for his three-year-old son but a mattress he thought would come with it did not arrive.
Caton pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to dangerous driving and failing to provide a breath specimen.
