A local man described by Magistrate Anne Longden as “more than a nuisance” faced Mandurah Magistrates Court on Friday.

Troy Robert Mitchell pleaded guilty to criminal damage in relation to an offence committed on February 27.

The court heard Mitchell had been a passenger in a taxi on Mandurah Road when he became agitated with the driver.

When the driver pulled over, Mitchell got out of the vehicle and damaged a hubcap before kicking the taxi’s two side mirrors off.

Mitchell, who breached a community based order by committing this offence, made no comment to the court.

“You are continuing to be more than a nuisance,” the magistrate said.

“You don’t seem particularly sorry about it.”

Mitchell was fined $500 for the damage and ordered to pay compensation of $500 to the taxi company.

He must also pay court costs.
