A man threatened to smash a store manager’s face in when he refused to give him a refund for an Xbox game.
Nathaniel Walsh, of Elder Road in Bradley, admitted to a charge of using threatening behaviour.
Walsh, 25, had entered the store to try and return an unwanted Xbox game.
A staff member told him that the security seal on the game had been broken and the store’s policy was not to offer a refund.
This agitated Walsh and store manager Steve Brown took him outside to continue the conversation.
Prosecutor Alex Bozman said: “He advised him (Walsh) that the seal had been broken and he was not prepared to give his money back.
“Mr Walsh lost his temper, making remarks towards Mr Brown: ‘I’ll remember your face, I’ll be back later to smash your face in’.
“He threw the Xbox game on the ground in the direction of Mr Brown and drove off saying: ‘You don’t know who I am’.
“Mr Brown felt concerned and scared as a result of this.”
Walsh’s details were circulated as wanted on the Police National Computer and he was arrested on April 20.
He had a small amount of cannabis on him and also pleaded guilty to possession of the class B drug.
Jonathan Slawinski, mitigating, said that his client had a genuine receipt for the game and lost his temper when the shop wouldn’t give him a refund due to the slight cut in the seal.
He told magistrates: “He lost his temper and made some silly comments.
“He accepts he upset the man in question and he’s been back to the store since and apologised.”
Magistrates fined Walsh £90 and ordered him to pay £85 costs and £20 victim surcharge.
The cannabis will be forfeited and destroyed.
