A drunk, nude man was taken into custody on a charge of hitting his dad and pushing him into a fish tank. Wayne Ingram, 40, has been sentenced to serve 24 months in jail, which was suspended for two years, after pleading guilty to Section 20 wounding. The man was also ordered to pay $1,528 in court expenses.
According to the police, Wayne beat his dad with a vacuum cleaner and a wooden hanger and then pushed him into the big glass fish tank. As the fish tank’s contents spilled out, a glass cut into the arm of the victim causing a deep injury. Ingram had been drinking alcohol and was nude when he initiated the attack on his dad.
The Preston Crown Court heard that Wayne returned home with vodka, and his dad told him to put on garments, but he refused. The court heard that Wayne Ingram struggles with substance abuse issues and health issues.
