SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 22 2018 NEWS 13 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA woman reiterated to Borg that their four-year relationship was over. The court heard he crashed into a parked car at speed trying to leave the apartment complex in his unregistered and uninsured ute. Borg was also unlicensed. Crown Prosecutor Hamish Riley said that Borgs offending should be classed as a type of domestic violence and that Borg had persisted in his efforts to break in to the apartment. Mr Riley said the victim had in effect, forgiven him despite being angry and sad at the time. Borgs barrister, Peter Bellach, said his clients reaction to the relationship breakdown was clearly inappropriate and criminal. He said Borg went ahead with his unsophisticated offending kamikaze style, after his first attempt to break in through the front door had failed. I suppose it is a pretty classic example of heightened emotions and someone acting on those emotions rather than just feeling them, Mr Bellach said. He said Borg was angry at being dumped because he drank to much and that he had since cut back on his drinking. Justice Stephen Southwood is expected to sentence Borg next month and flagged a likely court order for him to see an alcohol counsellor.

Borg had tried unsuccessfully to break into his former partners first-floor apartment using a hammer and a chisel before he parked his ute below the balcony, jumped on to its roof, climbed the railing and smashed his way through a glass sliding door.
